About 

Drafting is my profession and AutoCAD is my tool.  In an age of computer aided drafting, few still possess the skills to draft by hand and on the fly.  My education in architecture started just as hand drafting was being replaced by software, however, that software was still in its infancy, so I relied on my pencil and my scale for drafting.

Although, I officially took three years off from this profession to pursue my dream of national security, I was still able to design for those in need, during my time in service.

I now enjoy freelance design in whichever field demands it.
