Senior Fabrication Designer — FUTURE CITIES LAB (FCL)
(2 years) JANUARY 2017 - Present
As head of Fabrication Design at Future Cities Lab I take the concept designs created by our principle architects, Jason Johnson and Nataly Gattengo and develop strategies to build them and created detail production schedules. Creating renderings and CAD models I use the full range of digital fabrication tools including a range of CNC machinery to prototype the complexities of each project and test colors, materials, and finishes. Beyond these duties, I project manage, source, do quality control, and help develop RFQ's with 2D and 3d assets.
Graphic Design / Digitizing Technician — MILLS COLLEGE ART MUSEUM (MCAM)
(2 years) APRIL 2014 - OCTOBER 2016
At MCAM, I helped create a private digital archive of the Museum's art collection so it could be accessed by curators around the world. Using strobes, Canon 5D mark Series cameras and Adobe CC, I documented 2D and 3D work and compiled museum data for the EMBARK system, a global museum database. I created design assets for print and web and developed the manual for best practices that the museum uses to train its digitizing staff.
Teaching Assistant — Univ. of California Santa cruz (UCSC)
(2 years) AUGUST 2011 - JUNE 2013
I independently taught art and design studio courses at UCSC. I facilitated classes of up to 50 students, gave lectures, created course curriculum, wrote syllabi, and did grading evaluations. My courses covered everything from hardline graphic and architectural-style drafting to painting outdoors in the landscape around Santa Cruz.
