Durban, South Africa. ArchiCAD Consultant for TotalCAD Solution Centre (TCSC) . Including Technical support, Training, BIM Implementation, Office Standards & Templates, Rendering, Sales, Marketing and more...

I have over 18 years of architectural and computer technology experience, the last 15 of those years has been using and promoting ArchiCAD in small, mid-size and large architectural firms. I qualified as an Architectural Technologist (Architectural Assistant) in 1992. In the beginning of my career I worked primarily for Architectural practices primarily on residential, retail, commercial, factories and offices.

Some of my past architectural experience included the complete documentation of a 14 story office building in Smith Street and a 10 story office building on the Esplanade, both in Durban.

My ArchiCAD experience started in 1995, with ArchiCAD 4.5. I bought my own ArchiCAD 5.0 in 1996 and worked as a freelancer. In 1999 I started my ArchiCAD career with earnest working for the then Middle East distributor (Adabco/Awatco) based in Kuwait and Dubai. Unfortunately they were unable to secure me a work permit and I had to return to South Africa December 1999. Beginning of 2000 I joined TCSC as a support agent.

Aside from my responsibilities for providing technical support and sales assistance, I also currently perform the duties of a Consultant and Trainer. I have conducted ArchiCAD / BIM training and computer training for firms both large and small new to ArchiCAD as well as for firms that are current users. With my diverse experience I am equally proficient on both Mac and Windows platforms.
