AGN; What do you do to help develop your community and do you feel 3D design can have a direct impact in helping to improve socio-economic outcomes within it?
NB; I participate in Facebook groups and other fora, sharing knowledge and signposting emerging designers to suitable resources. I have produced tutorials/walkthroughs that I share with newcomers who request guidance.
AGN; Do you have an unfulfilled ambition you are striving to achieve in future?
NB; Greater stability within the field. I still struggle to make my way. I would love to be head-hunted and I feel this is not happening because I haven’t yet achieved a high enough profile.
AGN; How supportive were your family and friends when you first started pursuing a career in 3D design and who did you turn to when things got really tough?
NB; Everyone in my family was quite supportive especially my mother. She bought me my first computer when I finished high-school. Even though I didn’t obtain a degree they were still supportive of me fulfilling my ambition to become a 3D designer.
AGN; What was family life like for you when you were growing up?
NB; It was quite tough in some ways as my parents separated when I was young. That obviously has an adverse impact on the children and it is something I felt while growing up. Nevertheless, one has to make the best of things and that is what I resolved to do.
AGN; How do you like to spend your free time?
NB; I like to spend time with my partner, socialize with my friends, watch movies or listen to music.
AGN; Are there any closing remarks you would like to make.
NB; I feel 3D design is very much overshadowed by the likes of Pixar. What the big boys/girls do very much shapes peoples opinion of 3D design, but actually it is a medium that can be used for many forms of visual representation. It is good to see it is being used more widely and I do hope that in time the general public will gain a wider appreciation for it as they do other mediums.
