TS Super Support Agent and Proud Papa, Chris Briere

Our latest squid spotlight shines on Product Support superstar, Chris Briere.  As with many of our Squids, the path to a career within the digital arts industry began with a fascination for video games. Known around the office as “Briere” due to an overabundance of Chris’s, this Chris was guided by a good woman to pursue a degree in line with what he loves  (and we’re so thankful that she did).

After a brief sabbatical, we’re back and hoping you had a very happy New Year.  We’re ringing in 2013 with another addition to our meet-the-Squids series.  This week, we’ve got Adam O’Neal: a 3D modeling, video-game playing, New Orleanian inline skater.  Sound interesting?  Please continue.

Like nearly all of our inspectors, you often work on your own modeling while at home.  There’s certainly a unique dynamic at TurboSquid, in which the line between work-life and personal-life occasionally seems blurred (in a good way).  How does it work for you?  Is there a clear divide between when you’re in work mode and when you’re thinking more along the lines of an artist?
