I have extensive hands on experience with a variety of materials as well as knowledge of manufacturing processes.
I've been working as an automotive race fabricator/designer/engineer for the past three years at Saridea Autosport Gruppe and 3R Automotive/K-pax Racing.
I interned with designer David Schaich during the fall of 2004 and assisted in the design/installation of the rooftop patio at Club Vinyl.
Please comment on my work and its presentation. I am always seeking improvement!
