Drafter/Graphic Designer

Summary

Welcome to my VisualCV page. For your viewing pleasure, representative samples of my work in art, drafting, and graphic design are provided along with my education and skills.

Thank you for your consideration.

After many years of experience in the drafting field, I have enhanced my abilities in graphic design and solid modeling with studies in the latest software. My ability to create design solutions and to communicate them effectively can be utilized in a 2D & 3D cad and graphic arts environment.
