Conceptual 3D renderings, as part of design process and for client presentation.
I'm a commercial interior designer with over ten years of experience in design, space planning, computer renderings, construction drawings, construction administration and furniture and finish specifications on corporate office and tenant-improvement projects. I acquired Autocad skills in 2004 and worked with Skidmore, Owings and Merrill in San Francisco, focusing on renderings for Harvard University and Citibank. I returned to San Diego in 2005 and worked with Howard-Sneed Interior Architecture and Jossy + Carrier Design Group, firms I had been with in the past, focusing on all areas of commercial interior design practice, until 2008.
I developed a working knowledge of Revit in 2008, along with developing advanced rendering skills in that program. In 2009 I developed skills in SketchUp and Vray. In 2013 and 2014 I increased my skill level in SketchUp, with drawings based on npr style inherent to the program. One reason I focus on SketchUp rather than 3ds Max is SketchUp's excellent perspective system. In 2015 and 2016 I developed skills in Maxwell for SketchUp, and was involved in beta-testing Corona Render for SketchUp. In 2018 and 2019 I developed advanced rendering skills in Vray for SketchUp. Recently I've developed skills in Corona Render; importing SketchUp models into Cinema4D and rendering them in Corona, now available for Cinema4D.
Most of the renderings shown here (SketchUp, Corona, Vray and Maxwell) are based on existing projects, done for academic reasons, while earlier Autocad and Revit drawings are based on projects I was involved with as a designer, prior to 2008.
