5things

The Swissmiss tagged me a while back with this. Been busy recently, so I haven't has time. Until now.

So here goes. Five things you probably don't know about me:

  • I got my first job as a web designer without ever having sent an email, in a country where I didn't speak the language. It's been downhill ever since.

  • However, my baptism of fire in this biz was putting together a part hand-drawn, part 3D animated film on a 120 MHz PowerMac 8200 (Europe-only, I think) using InfiniD, Photoshop, Fractal Painter, and Avid. I scanned each frame individually (scanners where slow in those days). Rendering was even slower. (The film was subsequently shown at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival, and the International Animation Festival in Cardiff.)

  • I can field strip an SA80 with my eyes closed.

  • I've never set foot in South America or Antartica.

  • My strangest job to date was as the life guard at a sewage treatment plant. Seriously. My skills went untested.

I'm passing the baton to AceJet, Ray Frendon, and of course Kibitz, if they want it.
