I have a fairly well-rounded set of skills that include:
- Mechanical, graphic, and motion graphic design. I am experienced in the design cycle, from initial ideation, to prototyping, to refining a finished product. I have been using SolidWorks for around 4 years now, and have built large, complex models. I have over 10 years of experience with many of the programs in the Adobe Suite, as well as wide ranging experience across video editing software. For my latest project I am currently working in programs such as Cinema 4D and Adobe After Effects. I am also a capable machinist.
- I have a fair amount of experience building and programming microcontrollers. I study computer science, and I am familiar with languages such as Python and C++. I have also worked in web development for around 10 years.
- I have a degree in business, and I am experienced in topics ranging from negotiation to business development to project management.
I am a person that enjoys opportunities to practice a wide range of skills in my work. I hope to be able to find positions that allow me to work on several simultaneous projects, and to switch disciplines between projects. I am looking into opportunities now to practice engineering consulting, where I believe that different projects would push me to use and refine various skill sets.
I am also very interested in the performance lighting industry. Besides working on personal projects in this capacity, I hope to be able to one day build large concert stages and special effects in a professional setting. I really enjoy the combined focus of design and engineering in this realm that I believe can leverage my mechanical and aesthetic design skills, as well as allow me to engineer physical hardware.
