In 1992, I received a Diploma for Early Childhood Education. I worked in Richmond for 3 years, then moved to Australia. Out of our 5 years there, I worked at a German private school for over 3 years. When I came back to Vancouver, I wanted to take desktop publishing. When I signed up for it, they were just offering web design, so I took an additional course that taught me rudimentary HTML, Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Illustrator, Adobe GoLive (doesn't exist any more) and Flash.
