Full Biography

Over 20 years experience in delivering superb Office templates to corporations, with an emphasis on gorgeous appearance combined with foolproof interfaces and followed up with tutorials that clarify working methods.  I start with precise formatting, then add new features with VBA and Office Open XML mods to create dynamic templates that follow your brand standards.

In 2019, I published my book "OOXML Hacking" that shares years of Office file mod techniques that allow you to add custom table styles to PowerPoint, to lock shapes in Word, to add custom colors to the Excel color palette, to create SuperThemes, Effect Themes and much more. You can't call yourself an "Office expert" if you haven't read this book. Covers both macOS and Windows! http://www.brandwares.com/bestpractices/2019/09/ooxml-hacking-buy-the-book/
