I am a Professor of Automotive and Industrial Design at Humber College in Toronto Canada. When not in the classroom, I sketch, paint or build models of cars and bikes. In the past I have worked as an Automotive Designer (at Ford Europe in Köln, Germany), as a freelance industrial designer and as an art director and production artist for companies such as Bates Canada and Grey Canada. I have been teaching design full time since 2007, but like to “keep my hand in” with paintings, sketches and various projects. My focus tends to be automotive and particularly motorsport related subjects, but I also love to sketch architecture. The intent of this blog is to force myself to sketch with greater regularity – something that my schedule tends to mitigate against.
