Victor's introduction to technology was the Apple ][ his dad bought in late 1978. Since then he's used Amiga's, Commodore's, Tandy's, even a PC and a Mac or two. Victor's background includes 3d animation and filmmaking, a bit of web development and programming. He taught multimedia and game design for 5 years at a technical college. His favorite artifact: a cassette tape with Applesoft BASIC on it, copyright 1979, by Microsoft.
