Like many of our students I have studied abroad, and although I loved my time in Japan during my senior years of high-school, I could not stay there forever. When I returned to Canada I started my own business right out of high-school while also completing full time post secondary studies in photography, and then graphic design after that. While operating my company I had worked for many large companies including: Mac Cosmetics, Judy Inc., Foxxx Pools, Eikon Device, and the National Ballet of Canada just to name a few. In my final years of operating my company I was doing research into 3D imaging technologies which lead to me developing and patenting the worlds first 3D Reflective Micro Lens (3D-RML) technologies. After that I sold my company and became a teacher at which point I moved to China. I have now worked all across China and have taught in the cities of: Wuhu, Chongqing, Changsha, Beijing, Shanghai, and finally Nanjing. I like to learn new things and enjoy the challenge of solving complex technical problems.
