I see myself as both an educator and artist. This site is where I showcase my humble artworks and hopefully provide some useful thoughts and insights (if not meaningless personal observations). Presently, I am Course Chair for the full-time Diploma in Digital Animation (DDA) at the School of Digital Media & Infocomm Technology, Singapore Polytechnic (SP). I oversee the direction of the program, its curriculum, students and staff development, related resource issues as well as various aspects of publicity and outreach. I also teach, and am presently in charge of visual storytelling type of modules in addition to supervising final year student projects. Modules I have previously taught include 3D Animation Fundamentals, 3D Character Animation, Visual Storytelling, Conceptualization & Layout and Drawing. On top of that, I teach 3D Production as a part time faculty for the BFA in Art, Design and Media at Nanyang Technological University's School of Art, Design and Media. In 2015, I successfully completed the Master of Education program from the University of Adelaide. During the course I was introduced and became fascinated with the concept of "neuroplasticity" especially in the area of education and how it relates to effective student learning. I am intrigued by how and why students learn (or don't learn) in our fast-paced information-overloading distracting world, and what we can do to enhance the process. I wish to do more readings and research in these topics and may share some of my thoughts here. Prior to that, I had also obtained a Master of Arts in 3D Computer Animation (Distinction) from NCCA Bournemouth University, UK in 2006. My other significant achievements include:
