I've been involved in CAD and Drafting for almost 20 years and I'm still learning, because technology is always changing. I was an Engineer for 10 years. Rest assured you'll be given pretty much everything that I can possibly provide. I won't hold anything back from the student. I have plenty tips and tricks to share, that you only get from experience. Believe me if I don't have the answer, I know somebody who does. I love to teach and share my knowledge. I really focus in to train others on how to do what I do.

AutoCAD

Currently I've been working as a Mechanical Designer for CKGP/PW and Associates an engineering firm in Troy, MI for 2 years. Primarly I'm using CAD to detailing cross sections, equipment, building, process and conveyor layouts for the automotive companies known as the "Big 3". I'm currently using AutoCAD 2012 and 2013 exclusively to complete my designs. Prior to this I used AutoCAD 2000, 2005, 2007 when worked as and Engineer/Designer for a high purity water company for 10 years.

Drawing

When I was in college I worked with the instructor in consulting other students in various arts concepts to increase their quality, speed and accuracy. I consulted various friends and family, which some have gone on to become great artists. When I was at Wayne State University, my major was Mechanical Engineering and my minor was Fine Arts. At this college I completed engineering coursework along with Basic Art I & II, and Advanced Art I & II, maintaining an overall 3.5 GPA. I started drawing at the age of 5. Over the years, I've received scholarships and won various art contests. Art is truly my favorite subject, and is where my true talent and passion exists.

Drums

I studied music and music history at Wayne State University. I have over 20 years' experience in playing the drums. I played drums at 4 different local churches and was the head drummer at 2 in the last 20 years. I have tutored several students during the summer break 2010. Since my work schedule has been rigorous as of lately, I just play drums in my spare time, and maybe in a few occasional lessons and gigs.

General Computer

My jobs, experience as a business owner in computer repair and current position have allowed me to become an advanced user in general computers. I have skills in computer maintenance and troubleshooting, installing and removing programs, virus removal, and experience in using MS Exel, Outlook and Word.
