Profile summary

I have a strong interest in the development and application of computer aided design technology. Before my arrival at CCCU I have worked at Universities in Thailand, China and Taiwan where I have taught technical and digital design.  My creative and technical work both academic and outside of academics utilise computer technology. My focus is to teach the utilisation and development of new tools which aid in computer design technologies for use in games, film and other forms of digital media. I have a passion of game development and design and CCCU I teach students how to employ industry standard software in the creation of 3D and 2D video games. Aside of my interests in non-physical technology I am also interested physical applications of 3D graphics and electronics such as 3D printing, product design and electronics.
