Industrial Designer / Concept Artist
Royal Oak, MI
- Currently freelancing but actively seeking a full-time design position
- Open to relocating for the right opportunity
My greatest asset is undoubtedly my skill at sketching! I'm very team oriented with a "Utility-Man" approach towards facilitating too all avenues of the design process. Highly skilled in a broad and diverse array of comp software and I'm always taking additional courses, learning new programs and remaining open-minded.
I am fluent with, Rhino, Autodesk Alias, Sketchbook Pro + Designer, Adobe Creative Suite and Illustrator, and comfortable using any and all 2D and 3D tools at my disposal to share ideas with a team. Using these skills, I can communicate an idea effectively, accurately and with no hesitation, allowing me to move through projects at a rapid pace.
Detail-oriented and highly organized in my conceptualization, I am also straightforward, confident, and charismatic when sharing ideas, and am a positive team player. I tend to multitask on several projects at once, and strive to prioritize and streamline my work as much as possible while still exploring creative innovation to its greatest extent.
