I've been pushing pixels around for ages in addition to working as a graphic designer, Illustrator and cartographer.
I received a formal BFA in Graphics (Printmaking) and have worked as a portrait studio photographic lab printer. Doing daily rushes, proofs or hand printing anything from 35mm to 8x10 sheet film.
I took my first digital images with a Sony video camera, the frames uploaded to a Nexus 6400 frame grabber/image processor (RGB) front-ended on an IBM PC, sometime around 1984 while working as a Graphic Designer for video games. I started in video games when Donkey Kong moved from arcade to tabletop.
