About Paul Gieske

Hi there! My name is Paul. I am an IT teacher and an engineer, and I love creating digital 'art' as a hobby, including vector art, digital painting and animation. I love combining my technical and ...creative sides in many ways: - Combining my teaching and my creative side I love creating video tutorials. Why not check out my Youtube channel for some examples? - Now that I've been developing my creative side for I while I feel ready to start creating online learning resources! - My dream on the long run is to create a video game. I have some pretty killer ideas! Hopefully your skills will come in handy to help me fulfil some of the above! Hopefully I can help you out too. I currently live in Dhaka. So if you live close by and are interesting in meeting up, why not send me a message?show more
