Hi! I'm Jeff, but most people around here know me as wheatpenny. (when I first started collecting coins back in the mid-70s, I used to order bulk lots of assorted US coins, and they were always overloaded with wheat pennies, and so before too long I accumulated several thousand of them). I'm a Senior Moderator here at Renderosity. I use 3dsMax, Wings3d, Paint Shop Pro, Poser, Daz Studio, Shade, Bryce, Carrara, and a few others. I'm 53 and I live in York, Pennsylvania with my wife and 2 kids Cindy, and Jeff Jr - ages 29 and 26. I'm originally from California, but I left there in 1983 when I became a hobo, and met my wife quite by chance in 1984 when I stopped here to spend the winter. I'm a dual US/Australian citizen. I speak English Spanish, German, and can read French, Russian, Greek, Ancient Greek, Anglo-Saxon, and Latin. I'm currently working on learning Classical Arabic (the form of Arabic that the Qur'an is written in), and when I finish that, I want to learn Italian. I completed my PhD in Linguistics (with a minor in Egyptology) in 2007. I also have a BA in Spanish and an MA in Modern Languages. I'm a Sufi Muslim.
