I have more than 20 years experience with desktop publishing. I have worked with newsletters, newspapers, magazines, books (including art, tables and figures), brochures, technical and medical manuals, calendars, web sites and more. I have a Bachelor's of Science degree in Journalism from the University of Colorado and an Associate's Degree in Communication Technology from the Colorado Institute of Art (now known as the Art Institute of Colorado). I also write, edit and proof text (in English), and translate from UK English to US English, as well as format proof (DTP QA) documents. In addition, I edit and design books in all languages for self-publishing on sites such as CreateSpace, as well as for traditional publishing.

I am fluent in English, speak European French, and am currently learning Spanish. In the past several years I have focused my work with localization companies. I work with many languages - western and eastern European, Cyrillic, Asian single-byte and two-byte, and many more.After three years working for the software company, Quark, I am an expert in QuarkXPress, as well as troubleshooting systems and software. I also am an expert in many other software programs from Adobe, Corel, Macromedia, Microsoft and more. I work in both Windows and Macintosh.I have training experience in the classroom and on-site. I tailor classes for any group. I also occasionally teach a college level class in layout and design.
