<br>Simon Abrams was smitten with computers ever since the day his dad gave him his first
Commodore 64 back in the late '80s. It wasn't until he took a class called Intro to Microcomputer
Graphics in college that he discovered that the intersection of computers and art was where his true love
was to be found. He later attended the Savannah College of Art & Design, where he studied 3D Modeling
and Animation. Upon graduating with a BFA in Computer Art, Simon moved to New York City. After a
brief stint at Tekserve (New York's premier Mac repair shop), he got a job working as a designer at an
interactive advertising agency during the heady dot-com boom of the late '90s. Along the way, he
discovered his second love: photography, which he pursues vigorously as a serious amateur around the
streets and subways of New York. His photography has been featured on various sites, including Yahoo!
News, Gothamist, and Panasonic's Digital Photo Academy. Simon is an Adobe Certified Photoshop
Professional and regularly appears as a guest lecturer teaching Photoshop at New York University's
Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. He has also led workshops in the theater at Apple's flagship
retail location in SoHo, New York. Simon currently lives in Brooklyn, with his wife Stephanie. He recently
became a student of karate and works as a Flash developer at an advertising agency in New York City.
<br>Dan Moughamian began exploring Adobe Photoshop in 1993 and never looked back. His passion for
digital imaging ultimately led to a career in fine art photography, which continues to present day and has
evolved to encompass not only still photography, but video and motion graphics as well. Dan is an
accomplished instructor, teaching digital photography and Photoshop classes for Chicago-based venues
such as Mac Specialist. Dan is also an Adobe trainer for designProVideo.com, authoring titles such as
Photoshop CS4: Digital Photography Workflows. Dan lives outside of Chicago with his wife Kathy.<br>
