The Saga

star_wars_to_jediWhen I was 10, I loved my copies of Star Wars recorded off the TV.  Then for my birthday, I received the complete trilogy on VHS.  At the beginning of each tape was an ad for “From Star Wars to Jedi: The Making of a Saga”.  And with the realization that there were people out there whose JOB it was to create the magic I loved, I was hooked.  I took all the art classes I could throughout high school, and every computer graphics course offered in college.  I then taught myself Maya and Perl.  I got render watching and coding jobs, taught myself Python while all the while taking on any scrap of artist work I could get my hands on. Despite my persistence, due to a desire to stay in California, instead of dragging my family all around the world, I have decided to get out of the VFX industry. I am still passionate about Python, however, and look to find any other industry where I can share that knowledge and passion,
