The Creative Mind

The digital age is here and I have been helping innovators and inventors with the “Design Process” to plan and develop their creations using a variety of digital media. I provide the digital tools needed to further the design and engineering that may be required to finalize the product and to produce 3-D printed and C.N.C. models.

If you have an idea or creation inside your head that needs to be revealed on paper and revised to make exacting the size, shape, function and usage then I have the skill and talent to make it happen.

I am mechanically minded and always have had an appreciation of form combined with mechanical function. Product design allows me to exercise those key elements toward helping my clients turn their vision into reality.

I have a bachelors degree in Industrial Design Technology from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale and over twenty years of experience in the Industrial design industry. I’m a full time freelance Industrial Designer serving inventors and clients who desire to get their ideas out of their head. I help them to render their ideas on paper or in CAD drawings and 3-D models.
