Description/Introduction

His life, like those of many around him, has been one of constant learning, of trial and of variant experiences. However, most of the important lessons he have learnt may not necessarily be attributed to the academic institutions he have studied in. He believe that life is the biggest mentor, and those of them seeking wisdom have much to learn from it. Important truths that he has learnt so far are that of honesty, power of compassion and of the importance of pushing the limits no matter what. He believes that every battle can be won, and that there really is no such thing as a “lost cause”.

He is the believer of Evolution. According to him, life is not static and our personalities are subject to our environments and these are constantly changing. Thus, he believes that in order to stay abreast of life one must keep developing oneself and keep moving on. He believes in trying new things and in exploring one’s traits to the maximum if one is to live one’s life to the fullest. He is also quite aware of the power of good communication.

His ability is to produce an energizing and creative learning environment that will bring out the best in students. He believes that he can create constructive changes in student’s perceptions about Arts and Design.Through his cooperation’s, students will learn how to appreciate and like the benefits of socialization, personal achievement and team spirit that will achieve through study of Arts and Designs. He had been through different teaching methodology throughout my education career, so his exposure gives new methodology and techniques among the students.
