I work from my home office in Winthrop, a small town in lakes region of central Maine. I studied art at University of Maine at Orono and Goddard College Plainfield Vermont. My art studies were in art history, painting, and photography. For over 25 years I have been involved with computers, software, managing data, databases and doing graphic design.
For 6 years, I was co-publisher of Wolf Moon Journal, A Maine Journal of Art and Opinion. I did the graphic design and My Wife Laurie did the editing for the Monthly journal. In 2016 Laurie and I launched Hinterlands Press as the imprint for Laurie’s books.
Starting in 2021 I began offering self-publishing assistance and page design to others who want to self-publish using Amazon or Ingram Spark.
I initially used Scribus and Gimp for page layout and graphic design work. I have used InDesign and Affinity Publisher. Currently I am still trying to decide what page design software I will settle on. My OS of choice is Linux but unfortunately InDesign and Affinity Publisher do not have Linux versions so I am stuck in Windows land if I use them.
