Hey and welcome to CGDirector! 🙂 I’m Alex and I started CGDirector all the way back in 2011 with a single goal: Help Content-Creators find the right Hardware Components for their PC.

Over the years I’ve been able to fill many roles: From 3D-Generalist, Animator, Compositor, to Graphic Designer and Video Editor, handling IT resources of big companies to building my own Render-Farms.

Optimizing Computer Hardware that it runs the Software I am using the best it can, is something I’ve never stopped doing and I hope to help as many people as possible with what I learned so far.

CGDirector’s consistently growing Audience consists of Creators in Video Editing, 3D Animation & Rendering, Motion Design, Graphic Design, Photo Editing and most recently PC-Gamers.

Here’s Scott, one of our readers who left this warm comment:

I’ve spent the past hour or so just reading through so many of your articles and they’re just amazing! Please don’t ever change the format and way of writing. The Ryzen memory article was downright impressive! I understood things and terms I haven’t ever fully understood even after reading all sorts of articles and definitions. Neatly arranged benchmark scores, smart analysis, excellent hardware reviews and recommendations. Your website is a great resource that I’ll be recommending to all my colleagues.

I’ve been an Apple user all my life and have recently started exploring PC building.

This website gives me a vibe of a friend that knows how to keep me interested and is also very very knowledgeable. I just thought I should drop a line to let y’all know (especially Alex and Jerry and Christopher) how much I enjoyed reading all your articles.

Keep at it please!
