I decided to go into 3D design because I wanted to make a positive difference in the world. I believed that improving everyday objects & finding solutions to ‘ordinary’ or ignored problems would be a great way to use my strengths in physics, biology & the creative arts. It turned out that not everyone ‘out there’ shared this vision for bettering the world. Many were more focused on their own pockets or prestige, but there was a place for my ideals as a theory lecturer in the design department at the local university of technology. Looking back on those 4 years as a lecturer & 2 as a tutor, I see that I was able to live out my dream by inspiring and empowering other to do what i had been (& continued to be) unable to achieve myself in the design work place.
