Default How old are every one here?

I´m just wondering whats the average age for maya users, also, when did you start working with maya or just 3d in general?

I´m 17 and I first started playing with maya almost a year ago but I didn´t realy learning any thing untill after I registerd here at simplymaya.
How about you?

I'm 18 and I got started when I was 16 but let it sit on the shelf and/or modeled with primitives for basic diagrams in physics or something until I was 17.

29, hobbyist, played with it a little last year then have been hooked this year because of the simplymaya challenges and the fact that I have lots of time to kill on trains

Hey t1ck135, how do you manage to use Maya on the trains? Obviously you must have a laptop, but can you comfortably use a mouse? I'm just thinking about my commute - the trains are so packed I hardly have room to play my psp! It got me thinking though, I could seriously churn out loads of work by using Maya on the train!

I'm 24. I started using Maya nearly 4/5 years ago at Uni, and I now use it both professionally and as a hobby.

hi lisa, get yourself a mini laptop mouse as they are excellent for working on the move
I've got this model as I didnt want a cordless and have a usb block hung out of the back of my laptop. £15 on the site.

I'm in early on a virgin train so usually get a table or decent seat. On the way home its a fifty-fifty whether the local (old) train has tables and if they are full or not so empire or 3D world magazine is a good fallback

I'm 30. I don't remember when I started using Maya, but I've been working in 3D since I was 18. :p
