I am seeking employment that will allow me to work locally, utilize and grow my skills. I've put together some samples of my work, my experience, and where my interests lie. -Nate
Brief History -
- Currently I am working as a Creative Director for a graphics company specializing in litigation graphics.
- 2015 General Contractor, put together a solid team from Yonkers. Fully licensed and insured.
- 2005-2015 Various, high end design.
- 2004 Self employed tile-setter and woodworking in San Diego.
- 2003 worked for CNP out of San Diego. Specializing in large scale exterior signs. We did lots of stuff for Disney Land and fast food restaurants. Thermo-forming, sheet metal, custom pieces, and more. CNP was a great experience and I'm still in touch with a bunch of folks out there.
- 2002 Worked at a large scale fish tank factory, making tanks, wading pools, chillers, heaters. Big tanks. Crating.
- Early 2000's built art gallery spaces in Chelsea NY, lots of crating of art as well.
- Mid 1990's-2000 while in college, framed houses in Boston during breaks, with BullsEye Builders.
- Early 1990's created interior signage for Stop and Shop and CVS, Don Graves Signs and Retail Graphics. I got my start in fabrication there.
In addition to my experience with tools, materials, and the disciplines of plumbing and electrical work, I also have skills in both 2D and 3D digital visualization. I have found this has given me a real leg up on bidding for jobs. Not to mention giving my customer a clear idea of where we are going and what to expect.
THE HOME SHOP
The Shop I currently work out of. It's a bit crowded, but I do well down there. Nice 105" band saw, 10" contractor saw, shaper, jointer, planer, grinder, never can have too many clamps, and although I like my table saw sled, I do love my miter saw, sanders of various types, routers, press, love my oiled air tank. My two favorite tools are air gun and sharp chisel. I am also well versed in electric and plumbing. The van pictured was my baby, a real tank, unfortunately the motor went earlier this year.
-Just thrown in here for now, organizing it all is taking time, but this gives you an idea of my skill sets.
