About

I'm a freelance CAD and PCB designer in Ann Arbor, Michigan who is always on the lookout for projects, both long and short term. I've received certification in AutoCAD and design through Spartanburg Community College and I have two years of professional experience using AutoCAD, DipTrace, package assembly via DipTrace and Fusion360 as well as GrabCAD. I've worked for companies and as a freelance designer, working alongside teams and on my own and I've enjoyed every bit of it. I'm proud to offer aesthetically pleasing and functional designs with a fast turnaround rate while prioritizing my clients' personal preferences. Examples of my work can be provided upon request. I love what I do and take a lot of pride in helping to create things people can use and enjoy. I look forward to working with you and thank you for your time.
