Hi there! My name is Ben and I live in Melbourne, Australia. I’m currently studying a Master of Teaching (Secondary), specialising in Art and Visual Communication Design, at The University of Melbourne.
I have followed a twisty-turvy career path to this point. Holding degrees in both Design Photography and Computer Science, as well as an Advanced Diploma in Artisan Baking, I have worked in a variety of roles across the fields of design, marketing, communications, photography, information systems and commercial baking.
I have a passion for continual development and change and am always looking for something new to learn.
I bring this focus with me to the art and design classroom, where I strive to provide student-centred and inclusive approaches to education.
The portfolio below contains a few examples from my first year at Melbourne Graduate School of Education, activities and lessons from my placement schools and samples of my own professional and personal art and design practice.
