I have more than 16 years as a Network Engineer and Microsoft IT Business consultant. However I am talented self taught 3D animator/ Modeler/ and Photo Realistic Render specialist also. I have spent the last 6 years providing animated shorts, commercials, print work as a freelance artist. Computerized systems are my bread and butter and the animation is for the love of it. So I try to make my bids reflect as such.
