About the Presenter


Paul Kelly started out studying traditional film and photography at Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada. It was at a place called Toronto Image Works that he was first introduced to Adobe Photoshop. There was no turning back – he quickly dove into a career in graphic design, launching his own business in 1993 – providing freelance design, production and digital illustration services to a wide range of clients. He became an Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign (2004), then upgraded to an Adobe Certified Instructor (2011). He has taught in full time college and university programs around the Toronto area and continues to teach through the Sheridan College School of Continuing and Professional Studies.
