About Andy


Bio

I graduated from the New York Institute of Technology in Old Westbury, New York with a Bachelor's degree in Architecture. I realized while in college that the technical skills to succeed in the workforce were not being taught and I had to self-teach myself a majority of programs and concepts. My peers noticed the quality of my work and were always curious about the methods and techniques I use in my 3D modeling, renderings, drawings, and graphic design, starting my tutoring career.

I graduated from the New York Institute of Technology in Old Westbury, New York with a Bachelor's degree in Architecture. I realized while in college that the technical skills to succeed in the workforce were not being taught and I had to self-teach myself a majority of programs and concepts. My peers noticed the quality of my work and were always curious about the methods and techniques I use in my 3D modeling, renderings, drawings, and graphic design, starting my tutoring career.

Teaching people new skills and seeing them improve their work is the reason why I love tutoring. I aim to fill the gap universities do not cover, I have a varied background in Architecture, Graphic Design, VR, 3D and interior design allowing me to teach different students from different majors. I love showing students a tool and have them say "oh wow! I didn't know you could do that!"

I have worked as a Project Manager of an Architecture Firm, Graphic Design Freelancer, Draftsman and currently pursuing Virtual Reality & Visualization. I am fluent in Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Unreal Engine, Blender, Sketchup, Revit, Autocad, and 3ds max.

I am always reinventing the way I work and how my team accomplishes our projects and goals. I am constantly learning new software and plugging them into my design pipeline. My design background and my technical skill allow me to take any project from a napkin sketch to a full-fledged constructed project. I am currently becoming licensed as a registered Architect.

My whole life has revolved around computers, from building them, to pushing them to their limits with demanding 3D programs and gaming. I have worked on projects the size of interior renovations of a house to 100 unit complexes. I have worked on the architectural end of things, including design, drafting and permitting as well as the Arch-Viz end of the cycle.

I want to help my students become more independent and improve their technical value so they may exceed in university or the workplace. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out, I am always near my desk!

If you are a student or starting a new career in of Architecture or Interior Design, reach out! I have taught dozens of students from NYSID, Parsons, Pratt, SVA, NYIT, and FIT. I am also am Adjunct Professor at The School of Visual Arts teaching software and visualization and an Instructor at FIT teaching construction drawings and visualization.

I am currently tutoring in Sketchup, AutoCAD, Revit, Photoshop, Hand Drafting, Lumion, UE4, Indesign, and Illustrator.

Andy is very patient and a great tutor. Answers all your questions quickly. I had a couple of lessons with him. When he had to start from scratch with me, I feel I learned a lot from him within a short time.
