Worked at CGbot. “Unposteable” work – copyrighted. 3Ds Max, Cry Engine, zBrush used: not mastered, but widely used. Its hard to believe how some dreams crash with reality. I don’t really feel like working for video game companies anymore (I find modeling weapons and such too trivial and I think that there is more on life than that). Maybe it was a thing from the company; could try it elsewhere much better.
Very disappointed from my last job in Monterrey, I decided to start the Camino de Santiago, in Spain. 800 km walked. If you think this is a summer trip then you are wrong. This is a journey in which the mind and the spirit works out more than usual; an experience that is not taught at University or Work…
Start drawing classes at CEMUART, Tlalnepantla.
Worked as Cambridge Exam Supervisor at International House.
Became a Spanish Teacher. ¡Hola!
Worked at Siemens as a Language Coordinator. Worked with a tecno-jungle, concrete-heart collaborator. Very bad experience from which I learned a lot.
Became a professor at Tecnológico de Monterrey, Campus Esmeralda. I have the best job in life here.
A note from the clinic gave strange, hard to understand news. I can’t explain this and never saw this coming, but life is weird and strange at the moment.
Starting to run a language company from scratch.
