First, I would like first to thank you for taking the time to examine this humble
presentation of my work of the last 18 years.
At the tender age of ten, I saw a documentary on Frank LLoyd
Wright and wanted to be an architect. I took hand drafting classes at age 13
and when I entered high school I took all of the drafting and architectural classes
offered. My fi rst job in drafting was for a steel detailer and I quickly discovered that
there was not enough creativity for me. My second job was with a Civil Enigneer and
as time went on I found myself lured into the world of engineering where I became
licensed in Civil Engineering and Land Surveying. The last 18 years I ventured out
to become a self-employeed engineer focusing on architectural engineering.
Along with my experience in the built environment, I have nurtured my artistic
needs through spatial art and designing and building furniture. I have developed
skills and talents in woodworking, blacksmithing, leatherwork. and sheetmetal
work to name a few. I know my way around the computer and utilize programs
such as AutoCad, Maya, Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Bryce, Sketchup,
After Effects, Sound Studio, Premiere Pro and other Adobe products. I am also
quite profi cient at writing.
One last note, I have just retired from coaching wrestling for 18 years. I have
coached several National Champions and State Champions in addition to numerous
national and state All-Americans in high school, college, national and international
level venues. I can motivate people to excel against the odds.
