Craig Campbell is a Senior trainer at TechnicalLead.com. He has always enjoyed the teaching aspect of his job. He feels that relating to the person who is trying to learn something for the first time is a strongpoint of his. He has mastered the Adobe suite of products such as Flash, Dreamweaver, Photoshop, and Illustrator. As well he trains in web design/development areas like HTML, CSS and WordPress. A recent student sent us the following: "Craig has a fun, relaxed style that gets his point across very well. His small flashes of humor are very welcome, and bridge the gap nicely between sitting in front of a video series and being in an actual classroom. His lightness of style "humanizes" the experience of learning this way."
