Roland has been in the media industry for the last ten years. After suitably preparing himself with an Economics degree from the University of Toronto, Canada, Roland ventured into the swashbuckling media industry as a copywriter in an Ad Agency. From there he moved on to becoming a scriptwriter/producer with an interactive multimedia company wayyyyyy back in 1992 when AE was still very much an EGG.

Roland is very much into music creation and almost exclusively incorporates his own compositions into his work. Roland has also edited on the Media100 for the past seven years and has done demos (on larger-than-life screens) for Media100 Inc. at Broadcast Asia, Asia's equivalent to NAB. As you must know by now, he also enjoys sharing his knowledge with others. In his 'previous life', he has worked as a Consultant/Lecturer for a local Arts College and as a lecturer with a university in Singapore.

In 2004, Roland setup broadcastGEMs to develop templates for Adobe After Effects. broadcastGEMs was one of the first companies to provide such a solution to the vast number of Adobe After Effects users. Visit http://www.broadcastGEMs.com to find out more about this great product.

He offers courses in Adobe After Effects, Adobe PremierePr and Adobe Photoshop for Video.

He has also done consulting work related to post production for a number of companies. His recent students include senior management and post production graphics personnel from Disney TV South East Asia, lecturers at University Technology Malaysia and post production personnel from MediaCorpTV.

Today, Roland works as a fulltime freelancer using Adobe After Effects to create cool stuff for his clients. His work has been used by companies such as NBC-Universal, BBC World Service, WorldSport TV, SBS (Austrlia), Animal Planet, Mediacorp, MTV Asia, Silicon Graphics Inc. HP, EDS, Supreme Court (Singapore), Inland Revenue (Singapore) and Lexmark.

Roland likes to work with other professionals in a team environment and simply loves to work with honest and creative folks. Being a freelancer allows him more breadth to work with other like-minded proponents and helps to drive his creative juices and technical knowledge to the extremes.

During his spare time these days, Roland likes to play his guitar and write music. Check out his music at http://www.Myspace.com/RoRKrgbSpace .
