As a freshly trained 23-year-old fish culture extension agent, Tidwell was ill prepared for the remote tribal kingdom in central Zaire called Kalambayi. But his reward, ultimately, was his acceptance by the generous Kalambayans and his ability to share their daily lives.

Mike has been enthralled with 3D since before it was available on consumer machines. Some of his first real experiences with 3D were in 1995 when he helped to develop the use of 3D at a company called Saffire. It was for a video game called Wayne Gretzky And The NHLPA Allstars for Super Nintendo. Mike built some of the first 3D characters used in the games industry in a program called Playmation which later became Animation Master. Shortly after that he stumbled upon a much more complicated and exciting application called 3D Studio for DOS. Becoming proficient in Max as a hobbyist he was able to help Saffire make the switch from Animation Master when the time came, and continued to provide support from 1999-2004. Mike recently left Saffire after 11 years and is currently employed at DAZ Productions, functioning as a Project Manager for Bryce and DAZ]Studio. Bryce is a well known 3D landscape/environment rendering package and DAZ]Studio is an original 3D program from DAZ that is very similar to E-FrontierAs Poser. DAZ Productions is a leader in the 3D content industry.
