About

I am a commercial interior designer with over ten years of experience in design, space planning, computer renderings, construction drawings, construction administration and furniture and finishes 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. Since 2008, I have undertaken the study of several architectural computer programs. 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 for SketchUp. In 2013 and 2014 I increased my skill level in SketchUp, developing a style based on the npr style inherent to that program. One of the reasons I focus on SketchUp, rather than 3ds MAX, is that I think SU has a better perspective system. In 2015 and 2016 I developed skills in Maxwell for SketchUp. I recently was involved in beta-testing Corona Render for SketchUp, but the program is no longer available. I am currently developing skills in Vray for SketchUp. The Vray, Maxwell and SketchUp renderings shown are based on existing published projects, done for academic purposes. The earlier Autocad and Revit renderings are based on projects I was involved with as a designer.
