BIO Hi Gang,
About me? Oh geeze... Lets see. I have been working in Graphics for the last 12 years or so. I have worked at RayDream, Fractal, MetaCreations and Curious Labs in the QA department. I have owned a graphics and animation business and am partnered in another. My focus these days is working in the field of 3D stereoscopic imaging. What a blast!
If you ever want to get into the guts of a program you can certainly do it in a QA department! :) I have worked on many programs that you have heard of such as RayDream Studio, Carrara, several Kai Power Tools releases, Painter, Painter 3D, MetaStream (now called Viepoint Experience Technology), Avatar Lab, Poser, Poser Pro Pack and now Poser 5.
I can honestly say that Poser has always been my favorite out of all these tools. It is powerful and fun!
