After two years of training/schooling at Clover Park Technical College in Lakewood Washington, I received an Associate of Applied Technology Degree specializing in web design and open source web development.
I graduated in August 2008 with a 4.0 grade point and made the Presidents List two years in a row. See unofficial transcript.
Below is a list of classes I have taken. Because all of my web classes are interrelated I did not separate them into individual classes in the list below. Two quarters of School were centered on PHP and open source development.
- Adobe Photoshop I, Photoshop II , Photoshop III
- Adobe Illustrator I, Illustrator II, Illustrator III
- Macromedia Flash I, Flash II, Flash III
- Adobe After Effects I, After Effects II, After Effects III
- Digital Still Photography
- Studio Photography
- Video Production
- Adobe Premier Pro
- Adobe InDesign
- Adobe Encore
- Art Design and Visual Thinking
- Macromedia Dreamweaver
All of these classes have been great starting place for my career. I am so glad to have a working knowledge of so many different media design applications.
Truly my best education has been working with PHP and MYSQL. Learning how to give my clients the quality website and functionality they desire. The six years that I worked for the Williams Group Marketing + Design and the last year that I have worked as an independent contractor, have taught me a lot!
