About

My passion is AutoCAD. Taking an idea or a pencil scribble and turning it into something everyone can see, not just the creator, is empowering. For the past 8 years I have worked in the material handling and warehouse design industry. I had the privilege to work on multimillion dollar projects aiding in the design of automated systems, all the way down to a single rack bay for a veterinarian startup. I throughly enjoyed my time in the industry, but felt it was time to leave corporate life and focus more on life locally. No matter the size of the company or project making sure the customers needs are met and the desired visual design is achieved is paramount.
