Bio

Tom graduated from the University of Florida in 1981 with a focus on computer aided design (CAD). For the next ten years he gained practical experience with CAD and three-dimensional (3D) design in the fields of architecture and engineering. During this period, photo-realistic images depicting complex 3D designs, became a highly-respected (and expected) output of the design process. This was the start of Tom's long-term relationship with 3D design and animation tools such as AutoCAD and Maya, 3D Studio, 3D Max and POV-Ray.

Tom's interest in 3D design and all things digital led him to the value-added-reseller (VAR) business. Tom obtained certifications as a trainer for several CAD tools. Tom provided services to architectural and engineering clients for installation, training, consulting and customization of high-end CAD systems. During this time Tom also produced 3D photo-realistic renderings, engineering visualizations and fly-through animations for a variety of architecture and engineering projects for customers such as the DOE, Siemens, Ogden Environmental, Science & Engineering Associates and Peacock Myers & Adams PC.

From 1994 thru 2004 Tom entered into the fields of software application development and information technologies. During this period Tom was Configuration Manager for a retail banking systems developer, IT Manager for the largest architectural/engineering firm in New Mexico and a Senior Software Engineer with Intel Corporation.

Currently, Tom is manager of the Intel Innovation Center at the Rio Rancho campus. The mission of the Innovation Center is to foster innovation and creativity among Intel employees to generate new concepts, intellectual property, usage models and products. The center reaches out to the community and supports collaboration within New Mexico between public and private entities on new innovative technologies.

Tom is currently revisiting his passion for 3D computer-generated visualization. The skills that Tom developed while creating precise visualizations for architecture and engineering projects are now being applied to information visualization for Intel. Tomís most recent innovation was in developing a Factory Health Visualization that is being used in Intel Fab11 to view the performance of manufacturing tools real-time with a visually rich 3D metaphor overlaid on the factory floor layout.
