When FMC gave us creative freedom to create interesting instructor biographies, we ran with the idea. This bio for Photoshop expert Lesa Snider is one of our favorites, written to accompany the photo she submitted. (left) Bio in it’s entirety is below; we’re told it’s framed and in her office today.

Space. From intergalactic to white space, she’s both an avid Star Trek fan and a believer in practical, timeless, classy and clean design. Meet Lesa Snider, accomplished designer, author, energetic speaker and industry-recognized Photoshop guru. Changing careers and reinventing herself at age 30, Lesa put herself through design school, authored her first book, Photoshop: The Missing Manual and hasn’t looked back since. She’s now regarded as one of the most authoritative instructors in Adobe Photoshop in the world, with speaking engagements across the country and her many training manuals published worldwide. And she’s also one of the master trainers you’ll learn from at HOW2 Training Conference. “I teach practical techniques you’ll use every day. Following basic design principles always works; we’ll focus on practical techniques and create them using flexible, non-destructive techniques and maximizing the unique strength of each creative tool.”
