About Me: And my
latest "project". . .
Welcome to my virtual filing cabinet!
This is the place where I store information
regarding my projects, clients, and academic
studies. This is not my virtual portfolio
(although you will find images from A&D projects
on this site); that ever-evolving piece of visual
art currently occupies the corner of my drafting
studio. This site is specifically designed as
a repository of details not commonly found in a
portfolio (professional or academic).
“Why bother?” you might ask. My reasons are
- I have an unhealthy obsession with both paper
and organization (in a manner that only architects
and designers can truly understand). A
recent move has proven that I need to tip the
balance between the two -- in favor of the latter.
- I am actively seeking full-time employment
within the A/E/C industry, preferably in
commercial architecture and/or design
(A&D). So in order to best be prepared
to communicate the totality of my experience, I’m
using this opportunity to once again become
thoroughly familiar with the specifics of my
work. Click here
for a list of my projects and clients.
- I do not have a linear career progression.
My successive job descriptions bear little
resemblance to my intended career path.
(Thank you recession.) Therefore, I need a
method of conveying, in addition to my design
portfolio, the depth and relevancy of my
professional and academic qualifications in a way
that a chronological résumé and cover letter
simply can not deliver. -- After all, I
can't simply say "look past my current
position". Well okay, maybe theoretically I
could; but I won't. Instead I'll direct
everyone to this site because...
- I would like the world to understand that my
skills are broad and technical, not
capricious. Although I am presently an
architectural “CAD Monkey for Hire” (which is
neither ideal for career progression nor a
full-time gig), I hope someday soon to be once
again fully immersed in the business of built
environments. But in the meantime, I thought
it might be interesting to learn a little more
about custom web development and site management.
And so dieata.org (in its present form) came into
existence. Be forewarned that a page may
become unavailable or display “under construction”
at any time. Just know that means I’m most
likely squirreled away in my studio, between CD sets
and a laptop screen.
Thanks for visiting. And feel free to use
