Anders had always been interested in using his skills within a creative field, so after graduating from University he moved to the United Kingdom where he spent the first 3 1/2 years of his career as an Applications Engineer – 3D Specialist / interactive games author. During this time he also created animated video specializing more in After Effects, Photoshop and Maya. Anders continued to learn more skills in 3D modeling & animation and he knew the creative line of work was definitely for him.
