I am a Firefighter/Paramedic who enjoys nature, whether it be hiking, mountain biking, SCUBA, or whatever gets me out there. I have a lovely wife and 2 wonderful children.
For video, I use a Panasonic HMC150 and a Canon HV30. I also have a Sony HC20 that I use as my helmet cam for mountain biking, etc.
For software, I mainly use Sony Vegas Pro 9 for editing, Adobe After Effects (my favorite) for color correction and visual effects, and 3dsMax for 3d modeling and animation.
