Gary JeschHi, I'm Gary Jesch, also known as "CHOPS" - and I'm a performance animation artist who has an unusual way of attracting attention. If you need to generate some Buzz on the spot at a trade show or corporate event, you'll want to consider our trade show performers and virtual hosts.

For example, one client recently had us create two custom interactive avatars, and they realized a 10-15 times improvement in the number of visitors inside their booth, over the previous year.

Gary is great to work with and extremely responsive. He continually brought fresh ideas to his virtual character, "Julie." The performance was well worth the investment, and with Gary on the job, I never had to worry. It was perfect from start to finish.
