Jun 2009 - Nov 2011 | Norfolk , VA
As an instructor of Digital Entertainment and Game Design I engaged students on a daily basis to foster independent learning ideologies and good study practices. I would tutor students that requested additional knowledge or were lacking in the developments of solid skill sets. Much of the curriculum was pre developed but I took extra effort to create supplementals in learning to accent it. The course of study was very broad and required me to teach a multitude of different classes, everything from Emotioneering and storyboarding to Final Projects (Capstone). Over the course of almost 2 years I was able to take the class from High concept to a prototype. It was a very rewarding time in my life and I thoroughly enjoyed passing my knowledge to the next generation of designers.
