Born and raised in Guatemala, Armando moved to Europe in mid 2012 and subsequently to the United States a year later. With over 25 years experience in coding, design and photography, he started fiddling with Blender (after a brief, 15 minute, failed attempt back in the dark ages of Blender). After a couple of years using Blender, he is still learning and figuring out new techniques he can apply to his work. He is currently working as a freelance 3D artist using Blender. You may run into him on forums, blogs and YouTube trying to give back to the community by answering questions, posting videos or donations to several Blender related projects and blender.org.
Check out his ArtStation portfolio to see some of his node setups and clay renders of the scenes posted on this website. If photography is your thing, he also has a Flickr account. He runs a YouTube channel, in case you need some help starting out with Blender. If you want to find out more about him, head over to the contact page and shoot him an email.
