Instructor Biography

Dmitry Skavish, Founder and CEO at Animatron

I have been passionate about computer graphics and animation since the days when you needed to punch your game into the machine before you play it. I worked in the software industry for more than 25 years, from hacking VRML browser in C to writing analytic software in Java for a hedge fund. Last decade I had been trying to start my own venture (with mixed results). Animatron is my latest baby.
