Introduction

Hello, I’m Kevin Newman, a developer, designer and hobbyist living in London, Canada, who loves to make responsive websites, captivating videos and 3D models. In my off time, you can usually find me playing some video games, working on a side project, or doodling some little drawings.

I try to keep up with the current trends in technology by going to developer meetups in the area. Art wise I like to compete in 3D art competitions online.
