It’s content may include (but is not limited to), stories about my life and experiences; reviews of books, music, movies & television; software workflows of my 2D & 3D art hobbies. The opinions expressed here are solely my own and do not express the views or opinions of my employer or any other third party unless expressly stated.
I may act as an affiliate for some of the products or services that I recommend. That means that when you click links I publish to third party websites and purchase items, in some cases I may receive a referral commission.
