Hi, I’m Erica!
I am a speaker, trainer, and writer, creating content around software for creative professionals. I focus mainly on InDesign, Illustrator, and the mobile creativity apps from Adobe, as well as Apple Keynote and iBooks Author.
I regularly present at PePcon (The Print + ePublishing Conference), The InDesign Conference, The Creative Cloud Conference, Making Design in Oslo, Norway, and many InDesign User Groups and educational conferences across the US. I am also a frequent contributor to creativepro.com, indesignsecrets.com, and InDesign Magazine.
No matter how I’m delivering training–in person or via video–I really get a kick out of showing people how to get more out of their software. I love those “a-ha!” moments when the lightbulb goes on in someone’s mind and their whole face lights up at the thought of how to put their newfound knowledge to work.
After living as a location independent nomad for nearly a year, I put down roots in the border city of El Paso, Texas in the summer of 2014. If I’m not at my computer, I’m probably biking on the Rio Grande River trail, or hiking in the cactus-covered mountains just outside my door. Thanks for stopping by and come back soon!
