Michael Teasdale is a writer, computer programmer, and artist living in the Quinte area of south-eastern Ontario, Canada. He holds a B.Sc. in physics and astronomy from the University of Toronto, and a Residential Drafting and Design certificate from Loyalist College, which he is upgrading to an Architectural Technician diploma.
He discovered 3-D animation with Lightwave many years ago, but his 1Mb, floppy-disk-run Commodore Amiga 500 did not allow him much leeway to experiment or develop. Fast forward to the early 2000’s, when the spread of the internet allowed him to discover Blender 3D, the open-source modeling and rendering program. At last, he had the tools and computing power to create and display the models of ancient and modern constructions that fascinated him.
After a long career in software development and support, he discovered how much he loved historic architecture and building construction in general. In addition to pursuing an education in Architecture, he decided to apply his animation knowledge and his architectural appreciation to helping architects, designers and builders showcase the brilliance and beauty of their designs.
