The software that I am currently using is Autodesk Revit Architecture 2009, AutoCAD 2009 and
Autodesk 3ds Max. My background for the last 28 years in the architectural ield began as a
draftsman and I progressively moved up to project management. In 1987, I began to utilize
AutoCAD Release 9 as a drafting/design tool. Through the years, I have developed a high level
of proficiency using the computer in my design work.
