Savannah College of Art and Design (M.Arch) (Master's)
Hello, my name is Dallas. I've got a great appreciation for architecture and its craft. A proud graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design-M.Arch program, I understand the discipline and its complexities. Working in both civil engineering and architecture, this duality is a true asset to some of the many hats one needs to wear in the architecture realm. I'm a young, married guy just looking to help out others. I graduated less than 10 years ago, and I understand what it's like going through studio!
Maintaining a sound background in architectural design, construction, and civil engineering, I understand the importance and intricacies of clearly conveying informational presentations to clients, contractors and government entities via artistic renderings and technical documents. I use SketchUp, Revit, AutoCAD, Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator in my profession almost everyday, and I am very well-versed in the aforementioned programs, I'm here to help ... Just let me know.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I know Photoshop like the back of my hand--from proper initial image setup to finish touches and final output. I know smart objects, blending options, filters, masks, shapes, cloning, creating brushes, patterns. I've captured images and completed touch-ups for corporate artwork. I've created nationally distributed leaflets, monographs and images. I've also created architectural Photoshop documents for government submissions.
I've affectionately used AutoCAD since 1996, predominantly in the architecture field; however, I started out in civil engineering. In 2001 I won fourth place in a national speed and accuracy contest using AutoCAD. Sorta dorky, I know, but I'm super quick and knowledgeable. More recently using architectural desktop, I used normal AutoCAD for a long time. I can create blocks, smart walls, windows, doors, layers, quick/shortcuts, macros, layer theory, pen/color settings. I also know how to export and import to various programs.
I am very well-versed in Revit, and use it everyday! I am the office guru - I make components, create custom families, design intricate shapes and document the project. My co-workers come to me with questions. From soup to nuts, I do it all. I have worked for a BIM consulting firm, specializing in BIM-only projects and currently work for a very large Atlanta firm utilizing Revit and SketchUp.
Get into the nitty gritty world of Revit: stairs and railings, custom facade elements, custom doors and windows, rooms and tagging. There are many quick ways to create convincing presentations of your Revit model, lighting, shadows and animations! I've been around the program long enough to know the tricks and most importantly, what Revit is asking for.
