About the Author
Whoever told Rosanna that teaching was "work" sure hasn't witnessed her professorial multimedia magic at the Art Institute of California, where she teaches Web Design and Development classes. She's got this innate love for the creative freedom of the Web, and you can see the transference of her passion in the eyes of her students.
Rosanna's creative energy doesn't only exist in the classroom or on the Web. Don't be surprised if you see her donning Rasta braids with a flock of friends on boards, surfing the sea or the snow. She's done her time in the business world as well-starting her creative adventures behind the camera and microphone in radio, TV, and film and then transitioning to multimedia and Web design in the corporate sector before heading off to the teaching world. Her work at Ingram Micro is actually where her love for teaching began-by no one's fault but her own, Rosanna found herself working with other departments and their Web content almost daily. Her knowledge of the Web and patience and passion for teaching made her the integral link from a print medium to a dynamic Web resource.
When she's not writing on the chalkboard or surfing the Web, sea, or snow, you'll find her with her trusty companions-her husband, Alan, and her black Labrador, Forever-as they restore their new Eichler home in California.
