Hello! Here's a brief version of my work history:

In 1996, straight out of Northern Kentucky Technical school, I started working full time for Emerson Power Transmission as a Draftsman using AutoCAD R12. I eventually worked my way up to a Designer position while using a variety design software. The year 1999 is when I began using Pro/Engineer (now Creo) and mainly used it for design from that point on.

Sometime in the late 90's, I created my first rendering and was fascinated with the possibilities; to create a photo realistic picture from 3D models of something that doesn't exist.

In 2011, I started working for Luxion, the makers of KeyShot, as their technical support person. I also helped with other tasks including demoing the software at shows, bug testing, digital artwork and license creation.

In 2012, after finding out that my youngest son had an intellectual disability, it changed my perspective on what was important. I decided to stop working full time temporarily, become a stay-at-home dad and focus on freelance and contract type of work.
