About the Instructor:
Hi! I was born in South Africa but as a child, my family relocated to Canada and lived most of adult life in beautiful British Columbia. I remember getting a VHS camcorder and would make and direct my own home videos with my sisters. I attended Simon Fraser University (SFU) with a Communications degree and had another opportunity to film an educational hip-hop video for earthquakes. After I graduated university I went on to have a successful IT career working 13 years in the field. As an IT manager, I went on to pursue my MBA at SFU and found inspiration to start my own business and travel and film. By the time I had completed my MBA in 2011 I had found my passion travel, business, and filming.
During a wild and intense 3-year period I sold my house, purchased a camera and traveled the globe with my camera in search of adventure. I traveled to places such as Beijing, Singapore, Shanghai, The Grand Canyon, and Turks and Caicos. During this period a new revolution with the SLR camera was allowing people to create a cinema-quality videos. I spent countless hours trying to learn everything I could from the best to hone my craft. I currently have over 100 videos on YouTube and have one of the strongest travel video collections on the Internet.
After returning to Vancouver, I planned my next travel adventure to Australia, Asia, and Taiwan. I sold my car and all my possessions and arrived in Taiwan with my essentials, camera gear, and my dreams. I currently live in Taiwan learning mandarin, teaching English, and filming travel videos.
I believe I’m a continuous learner (currently learning Mandarin) and I’m always looking for new and interesting ways to learn things. I get upset when an article gives advice or directions and it is so general it leaves out the important details. I try to provide detailed step-by-step instructions using visuals or video. I hope you find my courses interesting and I’ll see you in there!
