biography

Starting at a very young age I loved design. Not just drawing things I saw, but creating new things. Cars, trucks, motorcycles, architecture...the list goes on. As a perfectionist, frustrated with my inability to make perfect drawings as I saw them in my mind, I was ecstatic to find french curves, circle templates, air brushing etc. All the tools I needed to put on paper what I had stuck in my mind. I designed my first product that went into production when I was 13. My family was in the business of building farm implement trailers. I'd always drawn up the simple blueprints from my father's sketches. One day he asked that I design a motorcycle trailer. This was the most exciting project I'd been asked to do, so I spent every waking hour for two days designing this sleek fiberglass luggage trailer. When I showed it to my dad, he was completely puzzled. He had meant a trailer to carry motorcycles, not to go behind them. Within a year, we were in full production, never to build impliment trailers again. As computers came along I was doing 2d drawings in Corell Draw. I loved my new found speed, but never having developed my sketching ability drawing in perspective was next to impossible. In 2004 I was introduced to Rhinoceros and Flamingo. It was life changing. It was such an intuitive tool I was drawing pretty much anything in my mind faster and more detailed than I could have ever imagined. I was freelancing within a month. It became a joke that I'd finally found a translator that could keep up with my "idearhea". Since then I've freelanced in many industries...For me variety is the key. The models I've uploaded are projects I did shortly after learning Rhino.
