He's one of the early members of CIG.
He started modding as a kid Doom and told his parents that he would be making video games when he was 16. He learned how to use various programs such as 3DSMAX and Photoshop and tried to get a job in places where those programs where used to get experience.
He was lucky to get hired by an architecture firm as a contractor to do 3D renderings which at the time were niche. After 2 years he went to work at Total Immersion Software, now called Antific doing real time simulation graphics which he knew how to do from modding The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion.
