I’m Tony Ramos. I help people like you with your multimedia presentations and printed documents. I’ve used PowerPoint™ since 1993. For nine years, I created slides for the world’s largest management consulting firm. I went solo 2002 and have been happily self-employed since then.
Occasionally, I am a presenter as well. I speak to groups about PPT design, tools, and technique.
I enjoy working with words and images. I’m very passionate about clear communication.
Microsoft awarded me their Most Valuable Professional, or MVP, annual designation for Microsoft Office PowerPoint, for four consecutive years, from July 2005 through June 2009. The company recognizes individuals for their voluntary contributions to the user communities of their products. MVPs are independent, and often critical, of Microsoft. Here is a list of current PowerPoint MVPs. I hope to once again be a part of this esteemed group.
In 2002, I was, to the best of my knowledge, the first to blog regularly about PowerPoint. Many have followed, frequently with better and more timely information. You can visit some via my blogroll.
Likewise, I am (again, to the best that I can determine) among the first PowerPoint and presentation specialists on Twitter who is actively monitoring the tweetstream for PPT users’ questions and pointing them to answers. I am not doing this all day, every day, but when I can. This is the way I choose to help the PowerPoint user community. That, and the blog.
Beyond PowerPoint, I also use Adobe’s Creative Suite. I’m good with Illustrator and PhotoShop, and fair with InDesign and Acrobat. (I use these as my primary tools when serving as a contractor or consultant for various clients’ proposals to governmental agencies. Yup, I am a proposal person, too.)
If you have an immediate need, call me at (216) 702-7796, tweet me @tonyramos, or see this page for contact information. Click here for my old, but still active, website. It includes my resume, portfolio, old blog, and client feedback.
