Gary Tussey

Born and raised in Denver Colorado, Gary was third of a four boy clan. His poor mother. He had fun growing up with two loving and likely tired, parents. His father worked for a railroad to remain un-named for the better part of 37 years, and he is a great inspiration for anyones work ethic. His mother is a firecracker knockout blonde that walks tall and is one of the most spiritual and positive people in Gary’s life.

How did 3D come into the picture?


Gary got kicked out of typing class in junior high for taking apart the typewriter. They put him in shop class and he never looked back building nine pieces of award winning furniture before graduating high school. Gary was lucky enough to have some of the best teachers and facilities in any public school.

What else can you tell me?

Spacial thinking

Thinking in multiple dimensions makes quick work to plan and visualize how things physically fit together whether it be is a skill that takes development. It takes years for someone to master even the software for 3D but it is based in real thinking about real things so hands on experience is vital.

What else can he do?

Welcome Challenge

Learning everyday and welcoming more challenging projects everyday. For the lucky few clients that get to hire Gary each year it is often a pleasant surprise that a lone freelancer can service so many creative needs. The schedule keeps filling up farther and farther out into the future so book him early.
