About

I've been a digital designer for 15 years and worked as an architectural and landscape designer / 3D modeler for the past 8 years. I fuse 3D CAD models and state-of-the-art reality capture technology to help people visualize construction projects and make better design decisions. Although my current work usually begins with a laser scan and point cloud, I am just as happy starting a design from a napkin sketch or client's vision picture.

Experience

  • Owner / 3D Modeling & Laser Scanning for Construction Projects ScapeSketch · Jul 2019 – Present 1 yrs Toledo, OH, USA
  • Design Manager Valle Homes · Aug 2016 – Jun 2019 2 yrs 10 mos Toledo, OH, USA Valle specializes in residential, complete home remodels as well as custom homes.

    Some projects required me to consolidate designs from multiple designers and architects into unified construction plans while others were in-house design-builds. All projects included collaborative design sessions in which I manipulated 3D models on-the-fly at the direction of clients and collaborators. Once designs were finalized, I was responsible for construction documentation and coordinating with fabricators and subcontractors throughout the construction process.

    My design responsibilities included concept models, 3D visualizations, and construction documentation for kitchens, baths, demo and framing, structural renovations, custom cabinetry, lighting layouts, exterior aesthetics, landscaping, and outdoor living. Valle continues to be one of my best clients on a freelance basis.
  • Owner / 3D Design & Visualizations ScapeSketch · Dec 2015 – Jul 2016 7 mos Toledo, OH, USA I worked as a freelance 3D modeler and visual artist for residential and commercial builders. One client during this period desired more photo-realistic renderings so I became reasonably proficient in Blender Cycles.
  • Lead Designer Mossing Pools Inc. · Nov 2011 – Nov 2015 4 yrs Metamora, OH, USA As lead salesman and designer for an in-ground swimming pool builder I facilitated hundreds of in-home design sessions directly with clients which forced me to design quickly and learn to take criticism in stride. After finalizing designs with the client, I was responsible for creating construction documents, layout, and briefing project managers prior to construction.
