    About Nerd 3D (Charles Taylor)

    "I started with Poser in 1999 right after Poser 4 was released. At that time I was working as a mechanic, trying to start a computer repair business, and fiddling with this new toy called Poser.

    Even in school, I always wanted to do computer graphics for a living, but I didn't know how or where to get started. I figured my chances of getting into movies as a CG artist were pretty slim. Poser has made my dream of working as a CG artist come true. I now work at home creating content for the Poser Universe.

    My first Poser product was "Morgana", an extremely skimpy costume for the Poser 4 female or Posette. I sold the first copy of Morgana May 10th of 2000. That changed my world. My wife Lynda knew how much I wanted to do this for a living. I was scared to let go of the 9 to 5 world. She eventually talked me into it and I went to full time Poser content creation.

    For years I spent my time pushing the limits of what Poser can do. I guess that is what I've always done with Poser. My experiments produced products that allowed smoke and fire simulations in Poser without the need for scripts or troublesome plugins.

    Then in April of 2015 I was invited to join the Poser team as Product Manager for Poser. Now I can really help drive Poser into the future. For me Poser is much more than a program. It's a way of life and a livelihood."
