Michael Stafford worked as a designer in the engineering field from 1984 to 1992. Introduced to 3D CAD (Computer Aided Design) in 1987 he rapidly developed proficiency with this new tool. It was this experience which first sparked his interest in Computer Graphics or more specifically 3D Animation.
Michael Stafford founded Stafford Design Service in 1993. His engineering design experience enabled him to interface with his clients designers without having a large impact on their productivity. In a very short period of time he can gather enough information and understanding of how a complex design functions and go complete his work without the need to repeatedly interrupt the work processes of his clients.
