Currently a full-time student at Otis College of Art and Design, studying Product Design, I actively strive to improve and learn new skills and techniques by fabricating complex props, costumes, and/or product prototypes.
Every project is tackled head on and completed with the highest level of quality possible. I begin with extensive research of various materials and techniques, determine the best route, and develop a plan to continue with. I pride myself in selecting difficult and challenging projects to further improve myself.
I believe in quality over quantity, but understand the balance between the two; when things must be done quicker I will set a quality threshold, and will still strive to do it to the best of my ability. Interior construction is just as important as the exterior aesthetic.
My skill-set includes:
- Molding & casting
- Rapid Prototyping (3D printing, laser cutting)
- Model making
- Basic circuiting
Programs that I am familiar with:
- Adobe Photoshop CS6
- Adobe Illustrator CS6
- Adobe InDesign CS6
- Adobe AfterEffects CS6
- Rhinoceros 4.0
- SolidWorks 2013
- WordPress 3.5+
I am always open to learning new techniques, materials, and programs. I learn very quickly, and learn best through hands-on experimentation (though guidance and criticism are always welcome). When I graduate, I hope to either work in the entertainment industry working at a SFX shop, or become a product designer designing fun products/gadgets stemmed from pop culture.
I graduate from Otis in the spring of 2014 and will be looking for shop work or product development work. I am open to shop internships/training through the school year.
