Started out with 2D AutoCAD in 1992. Moved up to 3D (Pro-ENGINEER) in 1993 and designed new food processing equipment for 10 years. Move to a large pump design company and designed municipal pumps for 15 years. Moved to a Robotics company and design robot components. All the while, I did freelance 3D Design for inventors, new product developers and a wide variety of companies on their projects. I continue to work in 3D Design because I love the work and I love helping people bring their ideas into fruition.
