Hello, here´s my brief bio:

Name: Mikko Kivioja
Age: 29
From: Helsinki, Finland
Family: Just me
Worked with 3d: Since I started my industrial design studies at University of Art and Design, Helsinki in 1999 (Microstation Modeler). :?
Worked with Photorealism: Since I started my final thesis(MA) in 2003(3dmax/mental ray/vray).
Why: I like to see my design right away as realistic as possible because it helps me to develope them further. And it´s of course nice
to have great images which I get by using Maxwell Render 8)

Worked with 3d: I have being using Max for the past 5 years
Worked with Photorealism: Even though maxwell a year ago ovked my vission i have always pushed myself to do as much photorealistic work as the software allowed.

Family: married & 1 child (born today)
Worked with 3D: hobby since age of 14, work since this summer.
Worked with Photorealism: Tried that since first saw Mental Ray (unsuccesfully) - then - since i got Maxwell!
Why: I studied to in a medical university (parents' choice in fact), than internsip to become a child surgeon, then i realised i am too kind to be a doctor and too creative in nature to be a surgeon, so i quit, turnedback to my old hobby, started to gain some skills, try some works, then - first client, then i thought, "Why not?" and i don't regret that change in life!
