The following is a list of skills I have acquired over the years. I have divided the skills up into categories to make it easy for you to identify the skills most closely related to your needs.

 0-1 Little to None  May have been exposed to it, but don’t really know much beyond that.
 2-3 Beginner  Reading books, starting tutorials, picking up basic skills

Autodesk

AutoCAD 2000—2010 7 Have created many 3d projects with AutoCAD, using layers, cameras, and other tricks to accomplish the desired results. I haven’t done much in advanced renderings, but could probably pick that up if shown. Taught myself much of what I know, so there may be faster ways to do some things I don’t know about yet. ( Prove it test results )
MAYA 8.5 5 Created a 3d animated Bear from book tutorial (Learning Autodesk MAYA 8)
Revit 5 I have been able to create a basic house design with this software, but the more advanced features I have yet to learn.
 

Other

FormZ 2 I’ve had a brief introduction to this program, and could probably make basic objects and maybe animations, but otherwise, I wouldn’t be that useful with this program.
Punch Home Design Software 4 Received the program, but haven’t used much because it didn’t allow for the designs I had in mind for kitchens or other features, and dimension entry was more complicated than I would have liked compared to AutoCAD
Google Sketchup 3 Have only played with a few times so far, but used it to created basic 3d models
Solidworks 4 I am working on going through tutorials for this program
Blueprint Reading 7 I understand or can figure out most blueprint drawings and symbols ( Prove It Test Results )
Photography 7 I have been a photographer since 2012. I shoot a variety of subjects and have won awards and have been published at least once. Photos available on Flickr
