I've been a Photoshop user since 1995. I've been a beta tester and worked with LightRoom and Photoshop programmers to add tweaks and features. I joined the National Association of Photoshop Professionals in 2005.
I've been around photography since I was a small child. I grew up with my father developing and printing his own work. I've used chemicals to develop film, an enlarger to create a print and manually dodged and burned to revise the print during the process. Photoshop is a natural extension of my childhood.
