I managed the team that was responsible for standardizing the plant drawings for all 250 USPS processing plants. This involved logistics, communication, delegation and project tracking.
As a member of the standardization project (above) I was also responsible for helping maintain the plant drawings. Among other things, this required standardizing AutoCAD blocks, layers, and drawing themes for each plant.
About 9 weeks per year part of my work was to help teach postal engineers how to do do everything I mentioned earlier. My role was to help the students who got lost during the exercises in class as well as host tutoring sessions after class.
I have been responsible for drafting and construction documents in both Revit and AutoCAD. The following is a drawing set for a residential project I did while working for the architect Mark Spangler.
These renderings have been made with a combination of 3D Studio MAX, sketchup, and photoshop for both professional and personal projects.
