I am a former US Marine during the Vietnam Campaign. I have a Certificate of Completion for the Elements of Technical Boat Design. I have a firm understanding for recreational naval architecture through developing a well performing and great quality hull characteristics. As well, I understand superstructure scantlings and construction views of the vessels I design. I am currently hoping this course program with IDI will facilitate a deeper knowledge for interior design as it may apply to recreational boat & yacht design interiors. I believe IDI to have a solid foundation and academic functionality for interior designs relational to Colors, Materials, Lines, Curves, Texture, Patterns, etc.
I am an accomplished designer who designs home DIY's for myself. Rhino CAD is my software of choice. I design boat & yacht hull parameters and characteristics, superstructures, marine elements of graphical design works, and I am familiar with engineering technical drawings. I have studied manual Drafting & Design and have taught myself Rhino CAD.
