I have been teaching and sharing my knowledge in design software for six years. When I teach, I open my student, company staff and colleague to the endless possibilities of the software by breaking it down to the basics of functionality and understanding. I have since extended this approach to my teaching of languages and elementary math and found out that this approach in collaboration with patience has proven to work best specifically when I teach elementary math and students of younger age groups.

While it is easy to master a language, software or even math just to get by, understanding the logic, format and principal behind each topic or software will truly make you a rock star, then you truly start to have fun learning and become a problem solver.

It is my goal to make all my students rock stars and the problem solvers among their peers.

Adobe Photoshop

My area of expertise in Photoshop is photo editing, 3D realist rendering, presentation packages, and material mapping. I have over six years of using Photoshop in the design industry with concentration on making 3D rendering from 3D max and Revit rendering look as real as possible. I also do material texturing for use in other design and rendering software.

Architecture

A house is a space, we live all our lives in and it can be simply intricate or complicatedly mind blowing.
I use architecture to solve problems with designs and in real life.
My area of expertise are: Residential designs, Commercial, Retail, Religious, Aviation and Healthcare Design.
I use the design process along side with the practice of architecture to teach students to appreciate the process of basic life needs and open their eyes to the joy of design.
To achieve this, I am very well vars in design software that expedite the design process such as AutoCAD, Revit BIM and 3D MAX.
I am also well rounded in design development, construction drawings and 3D animation design.
I create concepts and presentation boards for clients to help convey the idea of the design.

AutoCAD

My areas of expertise are 2D design production, creating AutoCAD models and coordinating with design consultants and project sharing. I also specialize in project transfer from other compatible design software to AutoCAD for better design interface.

Revit

Revit gives you the simple 2D view and the 3D view of you designs. There by letting you know how workable your design and design process is or what it will be by the end of the project in a short amount of time.
My areas of expertise are 2D design production, 3D rendering, creating Revit families and groups, coordinating with design consultants and project sharing.
I also specialize in project transfer from other compatible design software to Revit for better design interface.
