Bio
I am a Computer Aided Industrial Designer using ALIAS (Autodesk). I am capable of creating 3D geometry for anything from concept to production (art to part). I own a seat of ALIAS for design projects either long term, short term, contract or direct hire.

I have over 15 years of experience in the design field ranging from Tier 1 supplier design studios to OEM design studios (GM, FORD, NISSAN, etc).

I have a background in Fine Art from the University of Michigan and am quite capable of visualizing 3 dimensionally as well as communicating through sketch.

I am collaborative and inclusive in my approach to working as a team member. I believe this is very beneficial when working in a design studio environment.

I am involved in mentoring within the design circle and have instructed (as an ALIAS Application Engineer) many individuals from numerous design studios.

I am interested in Automotive Design, Medical (device) Design, Consumer Product Design, etc. I believe that my skillset and level of professionalism would prove to be an asset to any design studio and organization.
