1. Hi, tell us a little bit about you . Where are you from ? What are you doing ? (School , Work etc.) How old are you ?

I was born in Quebec City, province of Quebec in Canada. My birthday was 26 april 1959, which currently makes me 44 years old. I do computer aided mapping of all kinds, road networks, relief maps, tree populations, cable networks and anything else that can be translated into a computer database. Not the most exciting job, but it pays the bills quite well and my coworkers are all very fine people. I am not married, I have no children.
2. When do you started skinning and for which game?

I started skinning in september of 1999 for the original Unreal.
3. Do you remember your first skin ?

I not only remember it, I still have it. It is a male skin wearing a blue suit with fractal geometric patterns and with green skin. I was very happy with it at the time and I still like it today, even though it does look rather primitive now.
4. Can you tell us, for which games you have made customskins?

For Unreal, Unreal Tournament and UT2003. I have simply moved on to the new games in the series as they were released.
5. Which Skin's/Model's you have made for UT/UT2003?

Lets see if I can give the complete list.

For Unreal Tournament we have:

Dazzler, Nudiste, Lighting, Mouse, NecrisNue, SwanNude and SwanSong for the Female Commando.

Fang, Kel-Estor and Orion for the Male Soldier.

For UT2003 we have:

Mouse, MouseV2 and SwanSong for Human Female

Whimsy for Anuban Female

Hawken for Gen Mo'Kai Male

Kel-Estor for Nightmare Male

Wotan for the Robots

Tron for Anuban Male

6.What skin/model are you working on at the moment?

At the moment, I am remapping the textures on the DangerGirl model. I am not the author of that model, but I asked the author if I could work on it to remove the few texture bugs it has, and he kindly agreed. I see it as a good preliminary exercise for when I finally decide to make my own model from scratch.
7. How much time do you spend on a great skin/model?

It depends a lot. Unreal skins I can do in my sleep. UT ones are a little more complicated but two or three days are usually enough. UT2003 skins are much more complex. A good one can take me a couple of weeks.
8. Is there anything you would like to say to tell the community?

Keep those creative juices flowing people. Don't wait to have a great idea to start working, just start anywhere and let it become great as you go. I mean, if I can can come up with half decent skins, pretty much anyone can =8)
9. Where can we see your work? (Webpage)

The skins are on SkinCity, of course, and for my other stuff you can go to our clan site, www.co30.com
