About

I CAME TO NEW YORK AS A YOUNG ARTIST AND BEGAN PAYING MY STUDIO BILLS BY DOING SMALL CARPENTRY JOBS.

CARPENTRY LED TO CABINETRY AND CABINETRY LED TO FURNITURE MAKING.

I TENDED TO GRAVITATE TOWARDS THE MORE DIFFICULT TASKS AND STAIRS ARE THE MOST COMPLEX THINGS A WOODWORKER CAN MAKE SO I ENDED UP RUNNING A SMALL HANDMADE WOOD STAIR COMPANY CALLED ALEX MANUELE STAIRBUILDER, LATER CALLED SOLID FORMS.

AS THE ECONOMY BEGAN TO DETERIORATE PREVIOUS TO THE RECENT CRASH I ASKED MYSELF WHAT I WANTED TO DO NEXT.

FUNDAMENTALLY, I LIKE TO BUILD THINGS. I BEGAN TO EXPERIMENT WITH 3D COMPUTER MODELING PROGRAMS AND FOUND THAT I LIKED COMPUTER MODELING AS MUCH, IF NOT MORE THAN ACTUAL PHYSICAL FABRICATION.

AND THERE IT IS.  I PRODUCE TECHNICAL DRAWINGS, MILLWORK SHOP DRAWINGS, 3D MODELS AND RENDERINGS. THE PURPOSE OF MY WORK IS TO EXPAND THE DESIGNER'S VISION INTO 3 DIMENSIONS AND TO PROVIDE A SET OF TECHNICAL DOCUMENTS FOR FABRICATION. I LOOK FOR THE MOST DEMANDING AND DIFFICULT PROJECTS, PROJECTS THAT WILL PUSH THE BOUNDARIES OF MY ABILITIES. 

CALL ME OR EMAIL ME. I'M FAST AND EFFICIENT AND I LOVE WHAT I DO.
