BIOI began doing graphics on the Commodore Amiga about 10 years ago. I played a lot with the great animation capabilities of that machine, and other landscape and 3D rendering tools.
I joined the PC crowd in the mid 90s when I got a job doing graphics in a small resort maps business in northern Vermont (Where I reside). I currently use World Builder, Photoshop, Illustrator, 3DS Max, and most recently Vue d'esprit. I'm also in the process of building my own computer (AMD Athlon XP, Abit motherboard, 512 megs ram, geforce4 ti 4600, etc. etc)
I work in a small elementary school as a technology coordinator, and play with my 3D graphics on the side.
