Who Created The Courses?

D.J. Anderson

D.J. Anderson

Please allow me to introduce myself.  My name is D.J. Anderson.  I have been digitizing for over 18 years.  I have owned my own commercial embroidery company that specialized in custom embroidery, custom applique, vinyl for shirts and signs, sublimation printing, and Direct-to-Garment printing.  For over a decade, I worked at RNK Distributing where I was able to work with the guru of digitizing and embroidery, Walter Floriani. 

Walter Floriani, a fifth-generation digitizer, is regarded by many as the most knowledgeable, master digitizer to have shared his knowledge and passion for the embroidery process.  He taught thousands of people about the digitizing process.  

 

I was trained, mentored, and worked over 10 years side-by-side with Walter Floriani.  Walter graciously passed his knowledge and expertise about the rules of embroidery and digitizing theory to me.  During this time together, I wrote the highly successful digitizing book, titled “Digitizing Steps for Success.”  This book has sold thousands of copies and is regarded by many as the best book ever written on the digitizing and embroidery process.

While working with RNK Distributing and Walter Floriani, I was the Director of Floriani Software.  I was able to take what I learned and implement it directly into digitizing software.  Floriani Digitizing Software, like Floriani Total Control U,  quickly became the best selling digitizing software in its market.  I introduced many revolutionary, never-before-seen features and tools to embroidery digitizing software.  I was the person behind Floriani digitizing and crafting software until the end of August, 2019.     

I also have a degree in secondary education.  I was fortunate enough to teach Digital Graphics and Animation at the high school level.  You will see what my experience and expertise bring to the table while working through these courses.  It will be unlike anything you’ve experienced before with digitizing and software education.

Here's What Others Have To Say:

I was fortunate to have meet D.J. Anderson through social media after viewing some of his instructional videos he produced. D.J. stood out to me beyond the rest as his videos and instructions were so well structured, and the clarity in the way he conveyed his teaching, so smooth, not rushed, his style is unmatched. D.J. has taken my knowledge from a total novice in digitizing machine embroidery to a complete digitizer who would now be confident to hang my shingle and start charging for my work.

D.J. became my personal guru and mentor for over a year after meeting him in 2018 on the YouTube platform. He was always more than willing to answer all my questions and all he got in return was the knowledge that he was helping someone who wanted to learn this skill from the ground up and to pass on his love of digitizing.  He never gave up on me even though my questions came fast and in large volumes, he just kept on reinforcing my desire to learn and answered them all.

I have mentored a few in my time in the graphic arts industry over the years, and as the teacher I know how rewarding it is to share your knowledge of something you love and have dedicated your life to. That is what drives D.J. it’s to help, to help you be the best digitizer you can be, that’s his real reward.
