Ergonomic Boom Pole Patent

I wrote the patent and executed all of the drawings for this invention, which sadly, was too similar to a couple of existing patents (in that you could combine two other ideas to get this one) and was not accepted by the USPTO. The invention might still work, however, and of course I learned how to write a patent and create the drawings correctly, so it was not a bad project overall.
Here are the original sketches for the product:

Here are some of the completed schematics:

Valencia Community College Graphic Designs

While working at Valencia Community College between 2000 and 2004, I did a wide range of designs for everything from web pages to logo design.
One of the most visible designs I created was the ATLAS logo.
I also created dozens of PowerPoint designs from scratch.

And I was the first web designer available for faculty support.
