My skill set is an interesting blend as a designer and model builder. I’ve utilized both of these disciplines in the marine, automotive and product design fields. I’m confident that I can bring a fresh new look to your companies designs with my understanding of the design, modeling and fabrication worlds. The main focus of my career has been to put the companies I work with at the leading edge of their industry while creating award winning designs year after year.
