Innovative, experienced CAD Drafter/Designer who has demonstrated knowledge by providing 2D or 3D project deliverables, seeking a full-time position as a Drafter/Designer.


Bachelor of Science, Design and Development from Sam Houston State University 2012

Major: Engineering Technology, Minor: Horticulture


Safe Gulf, NSL Rigging Training Levels 1 & 2, OSHA 10 Certified


Legacy Measurement Solutions, Design Engineer/Vault Administrator The Woodlands, TX 2018-2019

Was designated to use Autodesk Inventor to create 3D models of GPU’s (Gas Production Units) and Meter Tube Assemblies for clients as well as worked as the Vault Administrator.

Modeled each component of the GPU that included skid, building, pressure vessel, firetube, line heater, coil assemblies, meter run, control and accessories models (threaded piping), and spool assemblies (welded piping).

Utilized the frame generator tool in Inventor to design and build the skid and building of the units. This method of modeling the skid and building allows easier modification without disrupting the integrity of the model and the features used (notch, trim/extend, cuts, etc.)

Worked extensively with pipe, valves, hammer unions, elbow, tees, pressure relief valves, orifice meters, and many other piping accessories to create threaded and welded pipe assemblies for the water, gas, and oil lines for the unit.

Built a General Assembly of the GPU by constraining each component together to form an overall view of the unit. This makes it easier to catch clashes, find issues in size, catch piping that is not lining up, or any other issues before it goes to fabrication.

Created technical drawings that would show dimensions, bill of materials, fabrication notes, welding, item call outs, and cut pieces in order to give the fabricator an accurate drawing to build from. These drawings were managed by revisions and updated per change requested by client or shop floor.

All parts, assemblies, and drawings that were created were organized and placed into Vault, the file management system.

Developed the Standardized Modeling Procedure that was used as the guideline for how the designers were to model GPU’s and each component associated. This allowed us to stay consistent in design regardless of the designer building it.

Utilized QAD to search for part numbers which were associated to parts we purchased to build the units.

Worked as the Vault Administrator for Legacy. This role included managing all Vault files and file structures. Began implementing the ECO’s (Engineering Change Order) and Work States process in Vault. These processes would enable the tracking and reporting of files in Vault and their associated stages of completion.

Patterson-UTI Drilling, 3D Design Consultant, Houston, TX 2017

Utilize AutoCAD Mechanical and Autodesk Inventor to revise drawings of company’s land-based oil rigs and backyard systems, as well as, create new parts and structures as needed.

Sketch, measure, plan, and create an As-Built or custom part for the rigs to fulfill client needs or new design.

Traveled to fabricator yards to ensure the structure is being built as advised in the drawing or identifying if the drawings provided need to be revised.

Hands on experience working in the Rig-Up yard creating sketches and measuring structures to then translate into a 2D or 3D representation for fabrication.

Subsea 7, Level 1 Designer, Houston, TX 2016

Lead and co-lead various projects to ensure drawings were completed on time and under hours budgeted.

Worked on 9 different projects in 2016 and produced nearly 200 deliverables from a variety of work scopes.

Developed innovative cost saving solution by automating commonly used structures into reusable formats. Solution reduced drafting hours needed to create drawings.

Subsea 7, Junior Designer, Houston, TX 2014-2016

Created technical drawings for various domestic & international projects using AutoCAD Mechanical and Autodesk Inventor.

Accurately tracked hours spent on developing drawings to ensure on time delivery of deliverables.

Produced deliverables for a variety of work scopes, including: Fabrication, Rigging & Lifting, Sea Fastening, Installation, and 3D modeling of subsea field components.

Collaborated with engineers to ensure drawing designs were accurate, safe, and represented the most realistic conditions during mobilization.

Subsea 7, Intern in Drafting, Houston, TX 2013

Gained experience in the Offshore Oil & Gas Industry by providing drafting support for clients.

Utilized drafting skills to provide drawings and sketches for multiple projects.


AutoCAD Mechanical – updated As-Built, created Rig Plot Plans, designed lifting arrangements/seafastening, provided storyboards for subsea operations, and revised existing drawings.

Autodesk Inventor –able to create accurate 3D representations of existing or proposed structures, to take existing models and modify to fit new purposes or designs, and provide all appropriate details and views for clarity with list of Materials.

Microsoft Office – Proficient using Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Outlook.

Vault Autodesk – to organize and manage deliverables. Utilized functions to run reports showing hours allocated to each deliverable and track stages of the workflow.

QAD - used as a cloud-based ERP system. Utilized this program to locate Part Numbers for our drawing’s Bill of Materials. These part numbers associated the specified pieces/sizes/schedules/etc. of a part and were used to order our items.
