Professional Experience
Set Designer: Freeman
Dallas, TX December 2008 to February 2010
Design general session stage sets and tradeshow booths. Most designs were sketched first for
approval before they were executed in the computer. Some concepts were hand renderings using
pencils and markers. This process was used as a means of keeping the concept loose and open for
discussion throughout the initial design phase. All final computer renderings were done using
Mental Ray.
? Work closely with Sales in developmental phase. Ability to sketch the concept during
exploratory design meetings was a plus.
? Worked closely with Account and Production Managers once designs were launched
into production.
