I am a designer by experience and education. I have worked mostly as a builder and designer in residential construction and renovation. For 9 of the last 12 years I have also been the General Manager/Co-owner of Adirondack Glassworks, LLC, a manufacturing and import company, dealing is custom-designed, hand-blown glassware from China. Later I worked as an independent designer for that company. I also have experience in several other trades and professions, including boat-building, high-end furniture creation, custom racing bicycle frame building, Historic Restoration, and home automation, among others.
I am familiar with AutoCAD (2012, 2D), I have recently become competent in Autodesk's Revit (2012), a 3-D architectural Modeling system, and Dassault Systèmes Solidworks (2010), a 3-D CAD system.
I have traveled and lived extensively throughout the world. My work experience and education are broad and deep. I can still speak some Spanish.
