I am mainly interested in print and web design projects and other opportunities in the realm of graphic design (branding/identity, project management, etc), but I have also been sought out in recent years for my residential drafting and design skills, and I am open to discussing opportunities within that realm, as well.
I have skills in several different arenas – I have worked primarily as a designer and a project manager for new creative technologies, but I also have many years of experience in sales and residential drafting (drawing house plans). To some, having such a varied skill set may seem scattered, but in truth, each of my specialities inform the others in very meaningful ways.
I worked in residential drafting in high school and throughout college while earning my graphic design degree (which is also when I gained some experience in sales). The truth is that residential drafting is fundamentally just a highly specialized form of graphic design, and the two disciplines are actually quite similar — both require extreme attention to detail, a standard for excellence in visual communication, strong deductive reasoning skills and software proficiencies, and both benefit greatly from solid planning in the early stages.
