Temples also holds a Master's Degree in Health Science from the University of North Carolina. Temples has worked as a graphic designer, illustrator, and cartoonist. His comic strip, Dumbbells, was published across North America in the Canadian Magazine, Razor. Currently, Temples is occupied in the field of education and fine art.
