As of February 1st, I'm the newest full-time member of the CG Cookie Crew! I've been working on and off in my free time over the past year doing blender training for them which now has evolved into a full time position. Specifically, I'm focusing on Blender training along with Jonathan Williamson. It's been a week of working at home, I'm still learning the ropes of the internet-centric work place, and couldn't be more excited about what's to come!
It's hard to believe that Blender -- an open source app that left me curiously complaining 2 years ago -- is now arguably responsible for carving out a new career path for me. Makes donation pretty easy!
