Please share a little about who you are and your interest in this meetup; do you do work related to vehicles or transportation now?

I've been a digital designer for the auto industry for the past 10 years. Every surface and part that the consumer sees on a car both inside and out, it has been considered, designed & modeled many times in order for it to be as successful as possible both aesthetically and functionally. I am well versed in digital visualization and complex surface modeling. My specialty is transforming 2D sketches into 3D surface models, simultaneously wrapping it over engineering safety criteria. I have experience in managing design teams, digital fabrication, and both show car and production automotive designs. I'm extremely interested in starting an "automotive" design studio here locally that caters to Silicon Valley's new transportation industry. The strides Google has made with self driving cars can change the automobile and transportation forever. When we can travel safer but maintain the same freedom that we now enjoy, the design of car as we know it can change drastically. I want to help!


Hello SVAOS! I'm a digital designer in SF. I've been in the automotive design industry for 10 years. I'm trying to learn more about this new industry in the Valley and creating a design studio here for the next gen of automated transportation.
