Being a small Trade Show/Exhibit House, I do most everything. From fabrication, warehouse, I&D, Graphics, etc.. My home base position is that of heading the Graphics/Design-Render/Detail department. In addition to this, I'm upgrading the company computer systems in both hardware and software with the objective of bringing in better CAD, rendering and graphics production abilities. With the additional goal of doing fly through animations and perhaps multi-media work. Currently my rendering work is done with LightWave on my personal equipment though plans are to get it up on Company PC's. IDEAS Inc. 11/92 - 6/94 Hired to assist in graphics production (vinyl, cut-letters, silkscreen.) In addition to my hired position, I would repair and upgrade the computer systems in the graphics department in both software and hardware. On my own I worked to promote evolving the company into doing inhouse image generation/processing, animation, multi-media, with an eventual goal of virtual reality. And to do so with low cost and low risk while solving problems by integrating data from various departments. Made a personal investment in a Video Toaster 4000 system and additional software and hardware in order to communicate by doing/showing. VARIOUS COMPANIES. 1979 - present Over fifteen years experience in Cabinetry, Exhibit, Display, and Scenery fabrication. From cabinetry to theater to tradeshow, have done most all there is to do from the production end. From co-design of theatrical sets to set fabrication. From layout/cutout in cabinetry and exhibits to installation (I&D), decorating and rigging. Materials varied and often I'm given the more difficult tasks to complete and freedom to determine how I'll accomplish it. Early 70's - mid 80's Helped many local bands as stagehand, soundman and lightman as well as cameraman, using both consumer and professional level equipment. Camerman experience includes numerious beauty pagents and the 1984 Alburndale Grand Prix Kart Races. FORMAL EDUCATION: * Programming - Dekalb Tech (winter through summer quarter - 1990).
