    While at ID Tech Camps, I was responsible for putting my modeling skills to the test and teaching kids of assorted ages between 9 and 17 the basics and advancements of 3d modeling. Through my guidance, these kids and teens went from knowing nothing, to being able to create models from start to finish as well as exporting them to build levels inside of game engines. This job is a wonderful experience for stepping into a leadership role and teaching something that I'm truly passionate about to younger hopefuls.
