Self taught, Building designer. Designer Member of the Texas institute of Building Design in the 60's and 70's. Associate member of the California Institute of Building Design in the 60's. I have designed houses of all shapes and sizes, apartment complex's, office buildings, shopping centers since the year 1960. I have worked for some of the largest builders in the southwest and in many cities and states, like Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and Florida. I officially started my business in 1961, and closed it in 1997 as a semi retired Designer. I prefer to do the preliminary designing of floor plans and elevations for clients, but can do the whole thing if needed. If someone wants cad work I can arrange it, otherwise it will be hand drafted in ink.. I spent several years as a structural steel detailer for local fabricators. I have acted as inspector and quality control for the major builders in my area.
