"Good design is making something intelligible and memorable.

Great design is making something memorable and meaningful."

Dieter Rams

Design is about creating,

not struggling.

With the knowledge you gain from my class, you’ll impress clients with professional looking designs and presentations!

I will train you all the tips and tricks I’ve learned that will make a tremendous difference in your learning curve and the way you approach and think about SketchUp.

If you're an interior designer, architect, builder, set designer, designer or a decorator, my classes will guide you through the SketchUp process and give you the confidence to express your ideas so you can spend your time creating.

It's the difference between landing

or NOT landing a client.

 

 

 

 

LEARN FROM A PROFESSIONAL!

As a production designer in the film industry I have been using SketchUp for over 12 years.

All of the imagery on this site I created using SketchUp.

I have used SketchUp on television shows such as Cashmere Mafia, Believe, Forever,

Saturday Night Live and hundreds of commercials including Google, Capital One and Garnier, Gatorade and Apple Computer!

I have also used SketchUp for architects, interior designers, decorators and home builders.

"Just wanted to reach out and thank you for the great class. I jumped right in and have already put together a number of proposals for clients this past week using the program. It's really helped step up my game with customers, my boss is stoked, and my guys in the shop are also happy to get much better and more accurate drawings before we put something into production (I make furniture). Your class was just the right amount of info to give me the confidence to start messing around on my own and dig a little deeper."
