A chat with Ben Semmler
How long have you been connected to the Clubhouse?
I’ve been a mentor at the Clubhouse ever since I learned about it at a game developer meetup in 2014. Now I help out at the clubhouse when I can on Mondays and Tuesdays.
What kind of activities have you mentored or assisted with in your time at the Clubhouse?
With my experience as a game developer and 3D animator I find that I can help out mostly with computer things ranging from prepping 3D models for printing to image manipulation.
What have you found most rewarding about being a mentor at the Clubhouse?
As a mentor it’s been a really rewarding learning experience, as I get to play with a whole new bunch of software, which I’m becoming more familiar with each day. Plus I get to meet a whole lot of wonderful people. At the Clubhouse I feel like my skills are valued and appreciated, which validates my dreams of becoming a teacher.
