Industrial Design and Modo Tutoring

Ask me anything

Hi! I’m Andrew and I’m an industrial designer currently based in Toronto, Canada. I’m passionate about all things design. I really enjoy teaching others and am intrinsically motivated to do so. I’m really happy I found Talktime!

As an industrial designer I am skilled in sketching, concept ideation, model making and user research, complimented with my deep knowledge of various 3D modelling and rendering packages. I also have a strong track record for bringing great designs to life and through my hard work and passion I’ve garnered multiple design awards. I am most proud of recently working with Icelandic artist and designer Sruli Recht as well as being selected as a 2020 candidate for The Weeknd’s creative incubator “HXOUSE.”

My strongest skillset is my knowledge of Modo for both modelling and rendering and that’s why I’m here, to spread my knowledge and share the skills I’ve learned over the years.

That being said, I’m also happy to help any aspiring designers learn more about industrial design and improve on their skills whether it be sketching, design thinking, concept ideation or just have someone critique their work!

I love helping others! I’ll always give it my all to make sure you get your questions answered.

Design has become my life’s mission over the past few years. I’m fully immersed in the world and I love it.

What else I can do?
I’ve been known to offer pretty decent advice from time to time.
