Where am I from
I’m from Singapore. A tiny island off the equator. It’s pretty hot and it rains alot. You know that country that has the Merlion as her mascot.
I’ve had my own small studio where I did everything from Architectural Visualizations to Web Portals. I worked with small family owned businesses to large corporations like Alcatel-Lucent , Epson, DSTA and Singtel.
Why I left Singapore
After spending a dozen years working in Multimedia and teaching Computer Graphics I had a serendipitous moment and I decided it was time to do something different and fun. I decided to move to Canada with one bag of luggage and a sweater and see what the fuss was all about.
What am I doing now
I am the Advanced Visual Effects Compositing Program Lead at Lost Boys – School of Visual Effects. It’s a mouth full. Basically I teach compositing for both television and features. I have been with the School for 6 years now.
My Students have worked on over 200 hollywood movies and a dozen tv shows since graduating from Lost Boys; Everything from the Guardians of the Galaxy to the Ghostbusters.
