    Operating my own company Danforth Design, and other contract assignments. Notably a 40,000 sq. ft very complex medical building, renovations at Orlando International Airport, and a multi-ton trash compactor for Disney Theme Park. Also building extensive 3D content for use in Second Life 3D Grid.

 Bradford Design Build- Single family houses- Design Management. I established design process for all the submitting architects,  that increased productivity, and accuracy in the field as every set of plans worked in the same style. The working style also pre-formatted all layouts so a lot of repetitive work was eliminated, and the effect of any change would be reflected across all drawings.

6-02 to 4-03
Rebah Fabrication drafting structural steel detailing for Orlando International Airport, Sanford Airport, and other projects, including  big steel, misc. steel, stairs, and handrails. As the last design stage there was no room for vagueness of design and I had to repair and design a great deal where things had not been thought through enough. I one case building a full 3d drawing that provided a vision of the design problems that led to many corrections that would have been extremely expensive if discovered in the field.
