Hi! I'm William!

I have spent the last 9 years in China with my family working for international schools in Sichuan and Yunnan province. I have been teaching Visual Art, Art and Illustration, AP Computer Science, Digital Arts, Graphic and Web design, HTML & Programming among others subjects related to Information and Communication Technology (ICT). I have previously worked for an IB school in Barcelona (Hamelinlaie International School), as a Visual Art and ICT Computer teacher, and I'm familiar with PYP/MYP/IB curriculum. 

I also have been teaching English, Spanish as well as ECA - Extracurricular activities - such us electronics & technology, Movie & Video creation, DIY projects, Photography Club, Online Newspaper & School Magazine, Music/Drums & Percussion.

I'm very creative, passionate and self-motivated lifelong learner. Digital Technology in the Visual Arts requires me constantly upgrade my skills and knowledge. Technology is changing the way art is created and forces me to look for and discover new programs or resources that help me to remain current.

 In my spare time I enjoy being involved in new projects, including illustrating books for children.

 

Professional Experience

I've been working as an Art Direction & Graphic Designer, Front-end Developer & Web Designer since 1993 to present.
