Speaker Bio:
My 20 plus year career in graphic design began in 1983. During that time approximately 50% of that time I was a self employed freelance designer/production artist. I knew full well what it was like to pull together my own benefits. I had to shop for my own insurance and learned how it applied to my needs, sometimes the hard way. In 2001, after over 8 years with a great company with full benefits, I experienced a layoff as the company downsized and then closed a short while later. In 2002 I obtained my insurance license and my new career began. At this point, I have 15 years experience helping others find health plans that meet their needs. As an independent agent, I am self employed and still shop for my own health plan. Being an independent agent allows me to offer plans from various carriers and offer an objective overview of what is available. My approach is to educate and consult. The idea is to help clients choose what will best meet their needs and fit their budget.

    A Panel of CDPUG experts will discuss alternative products now available for graphic designers to use for page layout, illustration and photo retouching.

    The conversation will focus on the page layout category as the newly released Affinity Publisher makes headlines. Affinity Publisher is significant because it is powerful, has a perpetual license, a cost of $49.99, and the companion products Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo.

    Also included in the panel discussion will be additional page layout programs like Microsoft Publisher, Canva and Apple's Pages. Time permitting, the conversation will include additional drawing and image editing products like Pixelmator, CorelDRAW and CorelPainter (Part of the CorelDRAW.2019 Suite).

    For those of you feeling alienated like the Stones in 1965, attend this program and discover if  "🎶 Hey, You! Get Off of the Cloud! 🎶" is a refrain in your future.
