About our coaches


Helping you learn and play!

Chat to our coaches online or meet them in person at the Adobe Hub, City campus, Building 10, level 4, 11am to 2pm, Monday to Friday. You can just walk in to the Hub, but we recommend booking a coach to ensure they are available when you need them.

Please note, the coaches are no longer available at Brunswick campus. We anticipate returning the service in Semester 2.

Luiza, Adobe Hub Coach

Luiza Alberti​

Hi there! I’m a recent grad from RMIT’s Bachelor of Design (Animation and Interactive Media), and my passion is bringing ideas to life! I love creating illustrations and short animated videos, and I also love helping people out. Whether you need to create a presentation for an assignment or want to express your creativity using an Adobe program, I’m looking forward to making the learning process easier for you!​

Matteo,  Adobe Hub Coach

Matteo Curcio

Ciao! I'm Matteo, a post-production specialist with a knack for creative storytelling. From Milan's bustling streets to Melbourne's vibrant scene, I've been weaving tales across the globe.​Through the years, I've delved deep into the Adobe universe, mastering its tools and techniques. I know firsthand how daunting it can be to navigate the Creative Cloud, but fear not—I'm here to make it all a breeze!​
Passionate about design and all things creative, I could talk your ear off about it for hours. When I'm not diving into the world of pixels and vectors, you'll find me exploring new ways to bring stories to life with emerging technologies like VR, AR, and Generative AI.​ So let's dive in together and unleash our creativity!​

Adobe apps: Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, InDesign, Lightroom, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Media Encoder, Camera Raw, Audition.

Thea, Adobe Hub Coach

Thea Francisco

I’m a creative problem solver, building up strange worlds and crafting meaningful connections as a game designer. I aspire to be a jack of all trades and have worked on urban play experiences for Melbourne Design Week, volunteered on an animated short film that world premiered at MQFF22, and in publicity with the RMIT Cinematic Collective. Becoming an Adobe Coach enables me to weave together my biggest passions: design and bringing people’s ideas to life. I’m currently a final year Game Design student, but ironically, I am a horrible gamer. I’m working on that too.

Adobe apps: Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Premiere Pro and After Effects.

Hi, I’m Jacintha and I’m a graphic designer and current final year Bachelor of Design (Digital Media) student. In my spare time, I also love making experimental videos using After Effects and Premiere Pro and composing my own music for them too. I love designing, problem solving and creating weird and wonderful projects. You could say, “graphic design is my passion”. I’d be keen to use that passion to also help you create great projects!​

Adobe apps: Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, After Effects and Premiere Pro.

Ryan,  Adobe Hub Coach

Ryan Justice​

Hey! I'm Ryan, a passionate designer in the final year of my Bachelor of Architecture. I constantly push the boundaries and develop new skills In my quest for innovation. I'm unafraid to explore the wild and wacky and this adventurous spirit has led me to collaborate with the RMIT Tectonics Lab working on research and developmental work. Adobe is my trusty companion, which I integrate with an array of software. I utilize Adobe tools for visualizations and post-processing work. I can't wait to meet you in the Adobe hub and see your ideas become realities.

Adrian, Adobe Hub Coach

Adrian Liuzzi​

Hello! I am Adrian and recently I graduated with a Bachelor of Communication Design last year. I know what’s it like to feel lost and struggle around Adobe products (they are always introducing new features and tools). Let me make your life easier. I had experience creating graphic designs, motion design, branding and even social media graphics. If you are someone who doesn’t how to do something in Photoshop, is interested in creating a banger reel video to impress your friends or even upskilling yourself in the Adobe program.  Reach Out if you need a helping hand!

Adobe apps: Photoshop, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, After Effects, Indesign, Lightroom, Acrobat, Adobe Express​.
