I self taught AutoCAD in 1990 on a 386-33. First computer was a Commodore 64. In 1993 I purchased 3 Silicon Graphics machines (Indigo and 2 Indigo ll Extremes) on an IRIX platform running Alias/Wavefront Animator and Animator Pro software. Did a few years of accident reconstruction. 1997, I was given Solidworks by a friend who was in the industry "to see what I could build". Solidworks has been my main program of choice as AutoCAD couldn't compare. I have since designed, prototyped, and manufactured and marketed small parts and been successfull. Currently been spending time in MAYA because of a forced retirement due to an inept doctor who butchered my shoulder. I've been an avid motorcycle rider/builder/racer for 37 years. I still take my work very seriously, old fashioned pride, strong desire to succeed and still look to do the best I can. I have a huge book library as all has been self taught. It has been a hobby as I have been a heavy equipment mechanic and expert welder for over 35 years. I love what I do, and love to create, and enjoy a good challenge.
