Hudson Valley Community College, Troy, NY, US, Adjunct Instructor

I teach courses offered in the Civil, Construction, Architectural Technologies Department.
I have taught courses in Hand Drawing, Blueprint Reading, Estimating, Architectural Design using AutoCAD and REVIT, and Building Construction. I introduce students in most of the courses to the vast media available to use in the design process including Photoshop, Sketchup, Inventor and Solidworks. I enjoy the teaching as it keeps me current with technology, media, and trends from the past to present.
