biography

Hi, I'm Brendan. I'm a CAD technician and 3D artist currently working in a freelance capacity and looking for fulltime work (willing to relocate). I'm currently about 3/4 of the way through an AS degree in drafting and design to supplement my BA in 3D modeling and animation. I'm a LEED Green Associate and am certified at the associate level in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011. I worked for over two years at a custom residential architecture firm and for about a year as a product support technician for civil engineering design software. I also served for over two years as CAD mentor for Gladstone High School's F.I.R.S.T. robotics team 3131, teaching students Inventor, Sketchup, AutoCAD and Solidworks.
