I’m an experienced designer, 3D visualizer, and problem solver with strong technical and detail oriented skills. I excel at, and bring to every project, a multi-task hard work ethic, an organized and collaborative approach, flexibility, and creative design solutions. I believe in a balance of innovative and creative thinking with common sense and experience.

My professional experience includes successful collaborations with business clients, architecture firms, exhibit firms, graphic design and branding firms, and sign designers. This experience includes conceptualizing, design development, new build design, 2D drafting, site measuring and as-built documentation. I’m also experienced in providing product detailing and coordination with fabrication shops.

Experience has taught me how to build strong relationships with all departments at an organization. I have the ability to work within a team as well as cross-team. I can work with designers, fabricators, project managers and clients to develop strong design concepts and direction as well as to resolve technical issues and implement technical enhancements.

I have professional experience and proficiency in the following software:
AutoCAD 2014 . Revit Architecture . 3D Studio Max . Adobe Photoshop CS5 Adobe Illustrator CS5 . Cinema 4D . Sketch-Up

Past projects:
