Set Designer from 1996 to pres.; VFX Model Maker, Prop Shop, Sp. FX from 1978 to 1996; Architecture, Interior Design. One of the first Computer Specialist Set Designers, including 3-D work. Design and build. Film and non-film. Features and television. Most people I work for consider me fast at drawing, model making, and location surveys. I work neatly and accurately. I have a wide range of skills and actual experience building props, miniatures, scenery, as well as home improvements projects which gives me a better understanding of what I'm designing. Also skilled at photography. Have recently performed several location projects from my home office because the people I work for know I'll get the job done without supervision.

I started working with AutoCAD in 1991, before VectorWorks was MiniCAD and have always preferred the accuracy of AutoCAD along with the wider variety of tools. While I can use SketchUp, I feel that I am faster building models in AutoCAD which is more accurate and provides more tools and controls. I've used Layout but find better line weight control, speed, and tools in AutoCAD. I can usually deliver a complete set of drawings to construction and then build a model using AutoCAD faster than to build a model in SketchUp and then produce drawings with Layout while construction waits. Some of my best work has been for Architects where the computer was more quickly accepted.
