I love AutoCAD. I really like being able to fine tune the way we put our drawings together through the development of AutoCAD’s dynamic blocks. I enjoy the many different types of work we do here at DHC including excavation shoring and scaffold, but I really like creating fabrication drawings…… I like having the ability to be ‘exact’. I have also enjoyed some of the other upper level programing that AutoCAD allows me to develop such as Toolpalettes as well as customizing the Ribbon for our needs. I am proud to be a part of a team that works on so many different types of structures.
I really like lighthouses, Photos of them make my jaw drop. I like the beach… I like being warm and I enjoy working out. I like old architechure, Frank Lloyd Wright, and castles.
I enjoy cooking and good food.
If I could focus my energy on one thing it would be to buy cool old buildings and restore them for use for which they were not intended. An example would be a retired old fire station and make it into a coffee shop … an old library into club/resturant/lounge ? a lighthouse into my house…
