Background

Graduated a Bachelor of Business, with a major in Sports Management and a minor in Event Management in 2012. I completed this degree at Griffith University Gold Coast.

Graduated a Bachelor of Industrial Design at Griffith University, Gold Coast 2016.

My skills are in the areas of CAD modelling, 3D scanning and 3D printing. I have gained a strong knowledge of Solidworks modelling and currently teach this program to design and engineering students at Griffith University. I also have a sound knowledge of rendering 3D models in Keyshot. I offer training and advice outside of the university classroom also, so do not hesitate to ask if there is something you believe I could help you with.

I've been freelancing since March 2017, and have found the work to be quite interesting and very broad. I've worked on scanning existing art models for reverse engineering and STL manipulation, which leads into 3D printing of new models and designs based off the original model. Using advanced 3D printers, such as the Markforged Fused Fibre Fabrication 3D printer, has helped me gain an even stronger hold of the realm of 3D printing for prototyping and manufacturing.

 

This industry continues to intrigue me everyday, and I endeavour to learn more about the design world of today and the possible opportunities it could provide me!
