About 

I have been passionately interested in Architectural design since high school and have been part of teams of professionals, as well as, freelance for the last 40 years. I have also been fortunate to have been given the opportunity to learn many different types of related engineering deciplines within the industry that include Civil, Structural, Mechanical, and Electrical. I utilized AutoCAD Civil Land Desktop 3D 2014 using paper space and Model space manipulation, master external reference files, scale factoring, dimensioning, and plotting/printing configuration. I also command 3D extrusions and isometric drawing, Surface profiles and alignments, volume calculations, electrical design with line diagrams, schematics, and PD&I.

I steadily freelance for individual clients, but my occupation merits contributions to a successful firm with the appreciation of creativity and growth.

On a personal level, I am an outgoing, fun, and strong individual who lives a balanced and stable life, and holds true to family, friends, and homelife. I enjoy many social events, and hobbies, including outdoor living, games, art and theater. I spend time painting, drawing, sketching, and managing my personal home Art Studio with a website. www.boneheadstudios.net.
