We will start by getting to know one another a bit so I can gain a clear idea of what you are hoping to gain from our sessions. Whether it be an intro to a software or taking developing a full start to finish project. After our first meeting I will use my 11 years of professional experience to develop a unique lesson plan for you and your goals.
About Etana H.

Hi! My name is Etana, M.S. I am a detail-oriented, self-starting designer with 16 years of professional experience under my belt. From print to web, design is not simply what I do for a living, it is my passion. I run a Tempe, Arizona based business called SocietyJazz = ‘Society’ as in the totality of people and ‘Jazz’ as in all that stuff. Society Jazz brings together my core concepts: People .Passions . Environments. I bring this philosophy into my teaching method: I believe that each person is uniquely different so therefore their love/passion in life and how they bring it into the world is their own. I use this philosophy to create unique lessons based on you, how you learn and what you want to learn. There isn't a creative challenge I won't take on with you no matter your experience level. My greatest joy is to share my passion of Design with you.
