When I was a kid, I spent all my time building models; cars, boats, buildings. Anything that was loose would somehow become part of it. I wanted to build the world. Now I get to do it all the time.
Mostly I work in 3d programs; 3ds Max, Maya, Sketchup, Photoshop, Illustrator, but I also work in physical materials like balsa, clay, polystyrene and 3d printing.
Almost everything inspires me, but I recharge by gardening, bicycling and playing trumpet.
