I'm an AutoCAD drafter and I currently work for a mechanical design firm that installs and services building automation systems for HVAC, security/access control, energy monitoring/management and CCTV. Previously, I have worked in custom cabinet shops doing woodworking, operating a CNC production router, and design and drafting. I have been interested in woodworking, architecture, drafting and design since Jr high school. My hobbies include woodworking, mountain biking, roller hockey, and anything to do with CAD drafting...either 2D, or 3D. I am proficient in AutoCAD, Sketchup, Podium, Cabinetvision, Mastercam and several online FPS games! I live in CT with my wife, stepdaughter and golden retriever.
