About the Presenter

 

Theresa Jackson graduated from UCLA with a BFA in 1984. Shortly after she embarked on a career in the graphic arts / print industry. Working in prepress during the early years of digital imaging, she developed an expertise in photo retouching, photo composition and all matters related to pre-press and printing.

 

Her work experience includes technical support and training for a color management software company, project management, and product development. Since 2005 she has worked as an independent contractor/graphic artist, with a major focus in print design, including large format printing.

 

 

Free Parking

 

The Veterans Memorial Building, which is part of Culver City's Veterans Memorial Park complex, is located at the intersection of Culver Blvd. and Overland Ave. It's less than a mile east of the San Diego (405) Freeway (use the Venice Blvd. off-ramp and go south to Culver) and three miles south of the Santa Monica (10) Freeway's Overland Ave. exit. The Memorial Building is surrounded by tons of free parking. And that's THE most important thing, right?

 

 

WiFi During Meeting

 

The Veterans building is a TWC/Spectrum hot spot. There are two ways to access the Internet: (1) If you are a Spectrum/TWC customer log in with your credentials and Internet is free. If you are not a Spectrum/TWC customer, you can use the Internet for two hours free. After that you have to purchase an Access Pass (for 24 hours, 7 days, or 30 days) to continue.
