Doug Marlowe Helps Harness The Power Of Technology For Individuals And Businesses, With A Specialty Niche For Artists. “teachITnow” Alleviates Frustration And Confusion

Doug Marlowe describes himself as “a curious sort”. His passion with art began at age 10, with the first roll of film he developed. That led him to the Rochester Institute of Technology with a degree in Photo Science and Engineering. He pioneered many of the processes used to go from the camera to the computer and from the computer to the printing press. Doug moved to telecommunications and was a “midwife” at the birth of the public Internet. Doug’s communication skills led him to decades of engineering project management and workplace education. Who has not dealt with some type of  technology issue?  Through teachITnow,Inc., Doug can help individuals, groups, and businesses corral their technology dysfunction and move forward with a sense of confidence toward success.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Could   you   benefit   from   Technotherapy?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With the rapid development of the Internet, computers, digital cameras, and cell phones, Doug was driven to educate those who are confused and frustrated with these technologies; especially artists, whose existence revolves around communications.

 

 

 

I don’t know if anyone else – no matter how creative she might ”think” she is – doesn’t arrive at the Wall of Exasperation! “What am I missing? I need a new set of eyes!” That’s how I felt when I called Doug to walk me through some various social media platforms for my very busy real estate career. Two days later, I took all my questions, my media campaigns, branding questions and sat with my ever patient brain trust named Doug Marlowe. Whether its formatting local or global campaigns or analyzing where the “new frontier” of promotion might be, I thank Doug for opening some areas to explore.

Doug helps to “Do it better, Do it faster, and Deliver results.”

 

 

 

 

 

Doug’s company, teachITnow, Inc. has been helping the “bewildered and confused” harness the power of their technology since 2008. 

 

 

 

Doug Marlowe has been my IT guy for ten years. His creative and patient teaching style has enabled me to feel confident in my ability to control the technologies I need to create my art. I trust Doug implicitly with many aspects of my gallery’s operations, social media, and marketing. I recommend Doug highly.

For the art community, and assistance with PC & Mac issues, Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Web Sites (new and updates), Online Stores and Sales (Square, PayPal, etc.), and, of course, training.

 

 

I was in desperate need of revising my web site in time for my SOLO show and knew it needed professional help. My anxieties were dashed within days and my web site looks great at a reasonable cost.  I will continue to call on Doug for help with marketing on social media.  He was a pleasure to work with.  I highly recommend Doug!

fundthealist.org

The FUND THE A LIST campaign calls for the Florida legislature to fully fund the essential arts and cultural programs formally reviewed, vetted, and approved by the process established by the Florida Department of State, the Division of Cultural Affairs, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.

• Every $1 invested in arts and culture returns $9 to the local economy.

• Florida is home to 58,162 arts-related businesses that employ 227,843 people.

A.J. Brown tells The Rickie Report, “I paint whatever moves me.  When I spend time to capture and visually record whatever appeals to my emotional senses at specific moments in my life, the intention is to share that experience with the viewer. My portraits are few and personal, usually of different icons, family members and close friends. Some of my landscapes are, in essence, also portraits, revealing protected treasures, unique geographical locations, or ways of living. My still life pieces typically reflect atmospheric and philosophic statements, and my abstracts reflect my freedom to commit to the journey from a blank canvas to what was created.”

 

 

Exploring the exhibition, visitors are taken on a journey through time and space with each painting. The pieces cover a wide range of subject matter and artistic genres, including portrait, still life, landscape and abstract.   “We are so gratified to be able to exhibit the very vivid and fresh art works of A.J. Brown,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “His vibrant work offers glimpses into his own passionate nature and brings Pompano Beach a burst of Caribbean energy and flavor. The fact that he’s also a talented vocalist is icing on the cake!”

 

 

 

A.J. Brown discovered the world of art when he attended Cornwall College in Jamaica. The ensuing four years were most creatively stimulating and rewarding for him as he learned to balance his visual art and musical talents in a symbiotic relationship. Brown attended art classes during the week, and on weekends he performed as a cabaret artist in multiple hotels along Jamaica’s north coast.

 

 

Brown’s artistic talents got a boost when he was accepted to attend the Jamaica School of Art at Cultural Training Complex (now renamed The Edna Manley College for the Visual and Performing Arts. He then moved to Las Vegas and was graduated from UNLV with another degree, a B.A. in Art, and his paintings and drawings were exhibited in a number of galleries and exhibitions in Las Vegas.

 

 

After graduation, Brown returned to Jamaica, and alongside his attention to performance and recording, his commitment to visual arts remained constant. His paintings and drawings were included in several exhibitions there. In 2003, he mounted his first one-man exhibition at The Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in Kingston. Brown is now firmly established as an artist whose works are being exhibited alongside the many of the masters of Jamaican visual art, and his own brand of art exhibition he calls Visuals in Performance or VIP enjoys a robust following. The Jamaica Tourist Board invited him to be a part of the 2006 Houston International Festival, and Brown has also been featured at The Liguanea Festival of Fine Art and Photography (Jamaica) and a participating artist at the annual four day Montego Bay Chamber of Commerce Art Expo.

WHERE IS BUILDING T6?

The easiest way to find our venue is to keep your eyes open for the blue and white MAKERS MARKETPLACE signs we’ll have posted on campus roads directing you to the market. Historic T6 and its neighboring companion Building T5 are remnants from the World War II era Boca Raton Army Airfield. The two buildings are easily spotted as they look nothing like the rest of our campus buildings. They both resemble old army barracks buildings with tall brick chimneys rising from the center of each. They are located on FAU’s Boca Raton campus, at the northeast corner, very close to Henderson School and the FAU Football Stadium and directly across the street from the east entrance of Palm Beach State College. We will have directional road signs placed strategically on main campus roads directing you to the place, along with free, close-by parking.

 

From the NEW I-95 interchange and Spanish River Boulevard: The brand new I-95 interchange for Florida Atlantic University (Exit 48A) takes you directly from the interstate to FAU. Once you pass the traffic light at Spanish River Boulevard, you are on the FAU campus on FAU Boulevard. Keep to the left lane and you will see a blue and white MAKERS MARKETPLACE sign directing you to make a soft left onto NW 8th Avenue. Our venue at historic Building T6 will come up soon after. Should you miss the soft left onto NW 8th Avenue, stay on FAU Boulevard; you will soon see a field on your right and then FAU Stadium. Stay in the left lane, and you’ll see another blue and white MAKERS MARKETPLACE sign directing you to turn left at Palm Beach State College Drive. Turn left again at NW 8th Avenue. Our venue at historic Building T6 will be on the right.

 

 

 

From Glades Road: Enter the FAU campus at the main entrance (the one closest to I-95) and you will find yourself on West University Drive. Continue straight. The road will curve eventually and become North University Drive and FAU Stadium will soon be in view. There will be a traffic light just past the stadium. Continue straight, and make a left turn at the stop sign, onto NW 8th Avenue. On your right, across from the entrance to Palm Beach State College, is T6, a long single-story building with a tall brick chimney. This is the place!

 

 

FREE EASY PARKING
In Lot 45, which is the parking lot just north of Buildings T5 and T6, just steps away from our venue!

 

 

Our goal is to help you be the best human you can be.
