Hi everyone, I'm new here. Every time I have a tech related question google directs me to the geekzone forums, so I finally decided to make an account after lurking as a non-member. This looks like a nice forum and I hope I can make some new friends.

 

I recently built my first PC because I want to learn how to use Maya 3D and Mudbox. I'm a traditional artist in my 30s from Wellington.

 

My interests are gaming (console and pc), mech keyboards, animation (2D and 3D), film, painting, drawing and sculpture.

 

Anyone else in Porirua or Wellington?

Not just a few - many!

 

However I am based in Paraparaumu now. Not sure if I am technically still classed as being from Wellington!

Thanks everyone for the welcome, really nice to see other Wellingtonians are active here too.

 

 

 

I think Paraparaumu is still within Wellington (Kapi-Mana?) and Tawa is super close!

Welcome.. based on the large numbers at the last GeekZone Pizza night in Wellington I think it's safe to say there are a few of us in the greater Wellington region. I live up the coast but work in Grenada North.
