I started Coda Marine for two reasons.  First, I have a strong interest in 3D design within the marine industry.  Second, there is a growing need  for accurate 3D modeling and that need is not always met with in-house designers.  Thus, I created a company to offer design support on a contract basis, using my 20 years of experience in marine design, including 10 years of detailed 3D modeling.

I received a Bachelor degree in 1993 from Purdue University in Mechanical Engineering Technology with a minor in Technical Graphics.  Most of my design career has been working in the Seattle area with companies such as Kvichak Marine and Elliott Bay Design Group.  I have worked on a variety of projects, from designing small aluminum  craft to the production design of large barges and ferries using ShipConstructor software.  If you would like to see a full resume please send an e-mail with your request.

I truly enjoy the challenges of marine design and I look forward to helping you complete your projects.
