Hello, my name is Michelle Terpstra and I am a Multimedia Design graduate from Durham College. Through my studies I have learned programs in the Adobe Creative Suite, video editing, and a couple of different coding languages for web site development.
I found my passion for the arts around high school where I taught myself how to use programs such as Adobe Photoshop and Sony Vegas Movie Studio. So I enrolled in the Multimedia Design program offered at Durham College.
I have knowledge in Adobe Creative Suite, more specically Photoshop, Flash, Dreamweaver, Illustator, InDesign, and After Effects. I have some experience with coding languages like HTML, CSS, PHP, and Actionscript. I have been teaching myself how to use Adobe Premiere and looking to learn wordpress next.
In my free time I manage a wikia that I work on to keep updated and clean, in addition to interacting with other users. On the video production side, I create AMVs for youtube where I design my own channel background and logo branding.
I have interned at Tribute Entertainment and worked as a Photo Retoucher at IPC Canada Photo Services. I recently worked as a Graphic Artist at Debco. I was volunteering for the Dalhousie Computer Society using my abilities to create posters and other required graphics for events they hosted. I am currently working as a Graphic Designer at Troopaz Inc.
