I am a part-time CG/VFX artist doing IT work as my full-time job.
I discovered Blender when I was laid up for medical reasons and stuck at my computer with the urge to do something creative. What a find!
I've been hooked on Blender ever since and, after posting some of my better projects online, even been lucky enough to be sought out to do VFX for a documentary film and web site graphics.
I love the Blender community and how so many people are eager to help others. It has inspired me to start creating my own video tutorials and hopefully be another valuable contributor to the Blender community.
