    The project went very smooth and quickly. He sent me an initial drawing and followed up with a phone call and completed the job.

About this pro

I take a holistic approach to design where all things are considered. A building or product must be attractive, functional, efficient, buildable, easy to construct, erect or manufacture. I usually do the work performed by a team of people. Finally, I like to use the best, which often includes, the latest technology available, both in the hardware and software fronts. For as-built projects, I use my own Total Station and Bluetooth hand held lasers. When it comes to software, I have access to the latest versions of AutoCAD, Revit, 3D Studio Max, Inventor, Vectorworks, Rhino, TurboCAD and a few other related programs. The combination of art and technology makes for a fascinating field to "work" in. I love the work that I do because the rules are always changing. When performed properly, the work I do makes a great positive impact in my client's lives, whether at work or at home. By helping them design the best environment or processes, a supportive infrastructure to make life easier is put in place.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      Lump sum projects are usually based on project density and complexity and level of detail required. Likewise, as-built project pricing varies according to accuracy required.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      It depends on the actual type of project, need, wish or goal. Generally, however, it begins with a quick or detailed needs assessment. For design projects, the steps usually include, preliminary pre-design research, schematic design, design development and construction documentation. I often conduct phone or in-person interviews, review product, drawing or model samples, conducts tests and then provide an oral and written report, including recommendations, budget, suggested scopes of work and schedule.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I studied Electrical Engineering with an emphasis on Computer Science at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. I also have an Associate of Arts Degree in Engineering from Cerritos Community College in Norwalk, CA. I have several Autodesk software certifications and have worked as an Adjunct Professor at the Community Junior College level, Authorized Autodesk Training Centers and have also taught at Autodesk University.
