I am a 3ds Max 2014 Autodesk Certified Professional and I am focused on developing my 3D visualization skills. In 2013, I took a 16 week course in 3ds Max at the 3D Training Institute, which included a 4 week Foundation Workshop and a 12 week Project Based Course. Projects developed during these courses include the interior rendering shown below, a motion graphics project, an advanced modeling project and a character animation project.
Setting aside my longtime Autocad skills in favor of more advanced 3D modeling tools, I took a one week course in Rhino, a one week course in Grasshopper and a week long REVIT essentials class. I am closing in on Revit proficiency with additional tutorials and personal practice. I am up to date with the latest software releases. Knowledge of these core programs is necessary to maintain a competitive edge in today's fast paced technologically driven architectural workplace.
In addition, I have a background in historic preservation, and I have worked on large scale transportation and civic projects at well known corporate architecture firms in New York City.
