I love teaching! I have developed several classes and workshops in digital artmaking for comics and games, talks on narrative structure and wellbeing, and core Unity learning in Toronto, Ontario.  I have a few classes I have prepped and ready to go! If you run an arts organization/educational facility or just have space in your world to get a bunch of humans together in a place, please reach out! I teach these courses fairly regularly around the Toronto area, at various places but especially at Dames Making Games at the Toronto Media Arts Centre. You can check the events page to see if I have any classes coming up.
