Self Medicate

HomeSelf Medicate


It’s probably more About Me, but I feel it sounds more professional saying ‘us’, like there is more than one on the team. Well, if I get into an argument with myself there is only three to blame – me, myself and I. HA

The Self Medicate Tutorials came about as I thought it time I (a) share my knowledge with the outside world and (b) get onto this blogging train.

My history begins with being a Secretary come Typist/Clerk when they had them in the days of chipping rocks, and always had an interest in computers way back then when all we had was electronic typewriters. We’re talking 1981 around abouts.

Time goes by and computers become more the go with floppy discs and MS-DOS, then came Windows and wasn’t that a buzz.

Moving on and decided to go back to school and completed a Certificate in Desktop Publishing, followed by a Diploma in Information Technology (Multimedia Integration) which lead me to website design.

I have been a Graphic Designer for more than 20 years now and over time picked up a wealth of knowledge in the IT field as I was not afraid of computers and always wanted to know more.

Self Medicate is a great forum for me to share this knowledge which I intend doing via a variety of means: Step-by-step guides, and eventually get on to the video tutorials.

If you want to know more about me, I’m on LinkedIn and have my portfolio on my design site Ikoniko Design Feel free to check it out.

I also have all my sites under the Brite Ideas Group umbrella

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoy the tutes.
