Hm hard to say that. First in touch with After Effects i got at the age of 17. Making videos entirely created at PC started with 12, I think. I worked with blender and sony vegas and made some intros with that, mostly for school. Lol i can remember how I made every frame of a trailer in Paint Shop Pro to achieve the “look” I wanted… man if I knew After Effects back then xD

I’ve learned Blitz Basic at the age of 13, Java with 19. But I’m not a programmer.

@ GrudonR: 15, damit biste sicher einer der J├╝ngsten hier :)
Deutsch (: Im now since 2 weeks 15 :D

I started when I was 13, messing with wml and html in a free hosted personal wap site.
That was really fun and with the time my passion for web growed everyday.

Back in 2004, I discovered a forum which guys modded their motorola phones to the bones, adding new features and themes. I said: Oh! Man that’s fuc** cool, I need to learn to make themes!
Then I discovered a Corel Draw (I moved to Photoshop today) and started playing.
In about two months I realized my first theme using Fenix X as a personal nick :)

With the time, I was really recognized by the community of ‘ModdingMyMoto’ forums, some of them called me the best themer (Skinner) of my phone category (razr v3, v360, l7, e398, etc…), with my themes available in almost any mobile phone forums around the world.
That was really amazing for me as a Brazilian which had to learn English by myself.

I’m really proud of my past, and today when I see my Photoshop canvas, and my Notepad++ editing some HTML5 /CSS/JavaScript of my own, I remember the earlier days when It was just fun.

If you wanna see, my themes website still online: http://www.e398mod.com/fenixx/

Man he was from the 1960 area when drugs woman and rock n roll was fun, me i start with drugs in the 1990 when bands like GNR , Dokken,ACDC, Judas Priest dominate the world and been a nerd computer wasn’t my thing, this thing calling myself a programmer came by accident after a Muay Thai fighter crash me on the arena, so after 6 month in the hospital i start doing design/programing again to kill some time .

I think in the last 15 years in a raw in front of my computer it’s time to say enough, after i was punish with my late birth and never have the privilege to live in the 60s and 70s i took now a teaching position in the university not the best money but it come with endless amount of hot girls to brush my eyes on a regular day and ride more urgently on my HD and stay in 1 country more than a year, should be fun :P

p.s.

ho ill be back again in 2022 when html5 will be mandatory and hopefully there will be more female design/programing then man`s :P
