I can't draw and I've been interested in 3d CG art since the late 80's when I got hold of a copy POVRay. Always inspired by classic sci-fi. Since then I've used Bryce, Truespace, more Bryce, 3ds Max and Blender. Currently mainly Blender partly because I support the open source ideology, but mainly because the upgrade cost is significantly less then max :) I like to take photographs too.
By profession I'm an Electronics Engineer, and started using 3ds max while in a fast proto-typing team. The career has moved onto software dev and management, so 3d has returned back to mainly be a hobby with occaisional professional images.
My main other hobbies are kayaking, and playing with the family, although I do the odd bit of Kung Fu too.
