I’m headed to Guangzhou, China in about two weeks having signed a two-year contract developing the Drama program at a new international school there. Teaching affords the great opportunity of a stable job plus (in the right cases) time to continue working on side projects, as well as travel during breaks. I’ve been a professional teacher for five years now, and the structure works well for my current goals.
I left my position as Head Teacher of Creative Arts in Sydney last December, mountain biked around SE Asia and traveled to India for three months, then spent just under six months here in North Carolina, brushing up on my design and illustration skills, studying game design and developing a text adventure, playing soccer and watching the World Cup, and getting in dragon boating.
During this past half-year, I’ve been freelancing on Teachers Pay Teachers and People Per Hour as well as with Three Post in Raleigh. In these final weeks, I’ve been burning the midnight oil working on two projects with them: one for the Raleigh Convention Center and the other for Lenovo’s acquisition of IBM’s low-end server unit.
Final products to be seen within the month of August!
