I've labeled myself an "interactive exhibit enthusiast". Specializing in the design of durable, accessible and easily maintainable science museum exhibitry, I've conceptualized and designed many permanent and traveling exhibit components. Also proficient with model-building, prototyping and fiberglass fabrication I'm quite versatile in the development of any coming attractions. Thank you for viewing my Coroflot page, and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or comments!
