About

I took a drafting class in high school and realized I had a knack for making drawings. I really enjoyed it, so I took 3 periods a day in my sophomore and senior year (1979 - 1981). Fast forward to 1988 and I was wiring Control Panels and found the engineering staff didn't have enough time for my Red Lines. I applied my Drafting experience to AutoCAD and wad able to provide a solution. I have been with AutoCAD or AutoCAD like products ever since. I recently got into SolidWorks. Again, the Vector principals are applied and success! Whether it is 2D Drafting or 3D Modeling, yes I will continue to create, innovative and have fun !! .
