Sharing my knowledge and constantly expanding it.

My name is Josh, I'm 19 years old, and I'm a hobbyist in both the Blender and Unity softwares. I'm a Computer Science major by day, and a Udemy instructor by night. Ever since my freshman year of high school, I have developed a passion for 3D modeling and game development after taking a drafting course. I have industry certification in the AutoCad software, but have since moved on and have been using both Blender and Unity for over four years. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, gaming, video editing, and programming. I hope that I can spread my knowledge of both the Blender and Unity softwares via my courses in both a fun and efficient manner.
