Ryan C. Hickey
I've worked as an architect for more than 12 years, with experience across multiple design platforms and construction project types. Looking for production/ set design jobs to combine my construction experience with my love for film.
I have considerable experience in both 2D and 3D drawing environments; developing design concepts using iterative sketching, physical models and software to produce comprehensive construction documents. The depth of my knowledge extends across multiple platforms: Revit Architecture 2019, AutoCAD 2020, Sketchup 2020, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign. This allows me to adapt to any design medium required for a project and facilitate program compatibility.
I hold both a Bachelor of Architecture and a Master of Architectural Sciences in Audio/ Acoustics and Illumination Design. My specialized degree in Audio & Acoustics gave me experience in digital signal processing, audio/video production, animation, AV synchronization, 3D audio technology, game engine design/ analysis , programming, recording Foley effects and computer-generated soundboards. It also made me proficient with video and audio editing software: Adobe Premiere Pro, Wwise, Adobe Audition, REAPER.
My specialized degree in Illumination Design armed me with advanced knowledge of Color Theory; appreciative of the behavior of light and how it interacts with humans and the environment. Using basic principles and calculations, I can re-create a desired scene based on the reflectivity of the surfaces and accurately recommend types of lighting to support that atmosphere.
I am motivated, willing and able to travel for any opportunity.
I have been in the industry since 2020.
