Games Technical Instructor at Staffordshire University

It's been a while since my last update, but since last year I've been working at my old university, Staffordshire University as a Technical Instructor for Games and Visual Effects. The job itself covers a number of things ranging from teaching to supporting staff and students with hardware, software and anything games related. 
In particular I've been in charge of their motion capture stage, the largest in UK education. It uses Vicon mocap software and hardware, and I had worked with their system since I was a student here, so it didn't take me long to adjust to any new changes.

I was unsure of the teaching aspect at first, teaching students to use mocap and overseeing their sessions but I ended up giving sessions pretty naturally, and have been hearing good things from both students and staff.

Seeing the university again and students working on various projects has made me want to work on games and animation again, and I've been able to work on a small project in some spare time. I plan to show some of my progress here soon, so I hope you look forward to it.
