I’m in Indianapolis (well, about 100 feet outside of it, as I type; my office is at 10th and Raceway on the west side). I’m a pretty new Blender user (about a month or two now) but I’ve been using various 3D apps for about ten years or so. I’ve got a full time (sometimes full time and a half, I’m sure you know how it is) gig as a software developer. I could probably contribute small scale projects or project elements, weekends and evenings, that sort of thing.
CGI is a hobby with me, and most of my work to date has been making funny and cute images for my own amusement. I’ve got a gallery at Renderosity (under the user name jevans69) showing some stuff I’ve done over the past couple of years.
Aside from Blender, I do most of my CG work with Wings 3D, POV-Ray, Poser, Paint Shop, and VideoMach. I’ve played around with a handful of other products, but those are the main ones that I use.
