FUTURE CITIES LAB (FCL) – Fabrication Design Lead
JANUARY 2017 - Present
As head of Fabrication Design at Future Cities Lab I take speculative designs created by our principle architects, Jason Johnson and Nataly Gattengo and use CAD software to render out possible construction schedules and building strategies. I use the full range of digital fabrication tools including CNC, 3D printing, laser / water-jet cutting, etc. to prototype connections, colors, materials, and finishes. Beyond design and fabrication, I manage projects, budget, source materials, and help develop RFQ's for new projects with 2D and 3d design assets.
MILLS COLLEGE ART MUSEUM (MCAM) – DIGITIZING TECHNICIAN
APRIL 2014 - OCTOBER 2016
At MCAM, I helped create a digital archive of the museum's collection to be accessed by curators around the world. Using professional photography equipment and Adobe CC, I documented 2D and 3D objects, compiled condition reports, and catalogued data in a museum specific software database called EMBARK. I also designed and wrote the technical manual for best practices that the museum now uses to train its digitizing staff.

My courses covered everything from hardline graphics and drafting to Plein Air landscape painting around the Santa Cruz area.
