Brief Biographical Sketch:

Hey guys!
I never got to attend Splash as a student, so logically all I do is teach! I'm pursuing a career in private equity, which is an area of finance. It probably means I'll end up working in an investment bank out of school for a couple of years.
However, I am a man of many pursuits. I indulge in everything ranging from photography to poetry, ultimate to dragonboating, making movies to making orchestras. I play games, I write articles for my school newspaper. I have lots of interests basically, and have picked up quite a few skills. So it would be my honor if I could help you pick up a few too.

Past Classes

  (Clicking a class title will bring you to the course's section of the corresponding course catalog)

B7648: Open Mic at Splash! in Splash! 2013 (Nov. 23 - 24, 2013)
Bring a piece of prose, poetry, song, or thought, and present it! Unwind and enjoy writing from your peers. We'll throw in some feedback as well, but this will be a positive and constructive environment for you to present in, no negativity involved.

H6254: From Hastati to Legions: Why the Romans Took Europe in Splash! 2012 (Nov. 17 - 18, 2012)
We will explore Roman military history with a technical analysis and breakdown of Roman units, technology, and strategy during the late Republic and early empire years. We will also take a look at their enemies and rivals namely the Gauls and the Carthaginians. Part of the class will involve demonstration of these tactics and the effectiveness of certain units against others using the Rome: Total War engine.

H6476: Performance Poetry@Splash: Writing Poetry in Splash! 2012 (Nov. 17 - 18, 2012)
If you are offended by graphic language, themes of sex, drugs, violence, depression, and similar mature and adult themes, please don't take this class. If you're looking for sex, drugs, violence, and depression, well you won't get those here either, BUT you will explore a medium that can convey feelings and thoughts about these things and more. Performance poetry is simply poetry that is read out loud. It does encompass slam, but this class is not about being able to compete with other poets. Rather, the class will stimulate your creative minds into writing about anything in your daily lives or your world, putting it on paper and then if you're ready for it, on stage. This class will guide you into writing some of your own poetry. You do not need to take the Performance Poetry@Splash: Performances section, but it is highly recommended, if only to watch your peers present their pieces. Ideally by the end of this class you will have some material to work on and get ready for that class.

H6477: Performance Poetry@Splash: Performances in Splash! 2012 (Nov. 17 - 18, 2012)
Wrote up some original work of your own? Well, now you have to share it! This class is mostly intended for the students of Performance Poetry@Splash: Writing Poetry class, but any student is welcome to join. Students will present their original work to other students and practice their performance skills in front of their peers. If you are not enrolled in the Performance Poetry@Splash:Writing Poetry class, please come to this class with a poem of your own ready to read or recite if asked to. It must be your own work. Note that this class will be mostly comprised of students that are relatively new to writing poetry, and that we are to create an inviting and welcoming environment for them to present their work. Also graphic language and mature themes may be written about, and if you are easily offended by such things, please avoid taking the class.

X5377: How to be a Boss (lecture) in Splash! 2011 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2011)
This 2 hour lecture course will go over the essentials to being successful in one's endeavors, especially in regards to those endeavors that require social activity. Basics in professionalism, appearance, confidence, and eloquence will be covered in this course. Whilst completion of the course cannot guarantee immediate jobs or internships, it will definitely put you in a better position to present yourself in public and social situations granted you use the techniques taught. This is a prerequisite to the "How to be a Boss (recitation)" course. The lecture course does not require completion of the recitation course, but it is recommended for maximum boss potential.

X5384: How to be a Boss (recitation) in Splash! 2011 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2011)
This is the complementary course to the How to be a Boss (lecture) course. Students will demonstrate how much of a "boss" they are (rather, demonstrate what they learned in the lecture) by giving presentations. This course will offer focused and critical feedback on what has been done right, and what needs improvement. It will also be much smaller in size than the lecture class, to provide a more intimate setting.
