Meet Patrick Hill,

Your teacher

I have worked professionally both as a Sous-Chef and as an Architectural Technologist (A.T.) for a number of years. I'm currently back in university pursuing my Master's of Architecture, and have a background in Art and History. I'm also an avid gamer, having been gaming since I was 5 years old, and I particularly love games that involve building and strategy. During my time as a Sous-Chef I had some responsibility in training and mentoring new cooks regarding proper food safety, cooking, and basic knife skills. While I earned my Dip. A.T. at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology, I worked as a peer tutor through the school for both first and second year A.T., helping them learn to properly use the software suites that were required for our course work as well as how to interpret building code.
