Designer by Design
For most of my childhood I was convinced that I was either going to be in the NFL or flying F-16s, but my trajectory shifted when my pop brought home our first computer in October of 1995. It ran Windows 95 and was powered by an original 66Mhz Pentium chip. In addition to playing too many DOS games, I became obsessed with MS Paint where I’d painstakingly draw graphics pixel-by-pixel (I thought that’s how all graphics were made at the time).
A couple short years later, a fellow Quake player introduced me to Jasc’s PaintShop Pro, Macromedia Flash, and Bryce 3D. My mind was blown and from that point on I have been designing, rendering, animating, and coding all the things.
