Bio

I have taught film to college students at the Georgia Film Institute (SCTC-GFA in Griffin, GA) and De La Salle University in the Philippines. Many of my students are film festival winners, and many of them landed jobs in the film and tv industry, with good careers with some making it as Director of Photography or TV producers. I have also taught young children to enjoy photography and film animation. In Georgia, our courses prepare students to work in the film industry.

I have taught film to college students at the Georgia Film Institute (SCTC-GFA in Griffin, GA) and De La Salle University in the Philippines. Many of my students are film festival winners, and many of them landed jobs in the film and tv industry, with good careers with some making it as Director of Photography or TV producers. I have also taught young children to enjoy photography and film animation. In Georgia, our courses prepare students to work in the film industry.

I just came back from Atlanta, GA and now live in Leesburg, VA with family. I worked on special film projects and digital media at my own time.

Many of my students twenty years back are still contacting me and telling me about their success in their careers. Teaching is most gratifying when students tell you even years after graduation that they learned a lot from you.

There are two essential things you need to develop when you deal with art subjects like photography, video production and film. One is technical. You have to get the right technological training which you can take in a technical school. But the more important thing is to learn how to see and feel. It is like writing, you might know the ABCs but that doesn't make you a writer. Some say it is hereditary. What I know is it can be developed. It can start with appreciation. My film and photography students learn how to see by learning the properties of light for instance. While doing a film production, I could teach different techniques on camera work that makes it more effective in coming out with content. It becomes part of you because you learned what is essential - you learn to see and feel and therefore communicate. In art, passion is important because you cannot develop your love for art if you have not learned to be passionate.

Do get in touch with me so we can talk about what you want to accomplish. We have to establish goals, and mutually agree on it. Ultimately, I want your learning to matter so that you can use it to foster your career.

Chess

Chess

I have taught young players to be excellent in chess. I love chess myself, learned it when I was six years old. I taught my three children to play chess. They are all high level players, have good jobs as software engineers and top mechanic, and one is a FIDE master. We have travelled around the world to participate in tournaments. I founded and organized the Ashburn Chess Club and made it as the best training ground for chess in this part of the East Coast. We had students who are now masters and play in state championships, national tournaments and in the world youth championships. I even sent one of our top students to the Moscow Open. To make chess matter, a child should get the proper training at a young age. I have done that, and like to teach chess further.
