Meet Nate

]A few of you may have noticed we have some more help here lately. Some call him chuck, chuckles, the beast, or simply Nate. He’s a good friend of mine from college, and Nate has offered to help out and take an active role here on the site. He’ll be helping out as a general community manager, or energy booster if you will. He’ll knock heads if things get out of line and help out where he can.

Nate lived in Las Vegas until at the age of 11 when his family moved to Sandy, Utah. “I grew up tearing things apart and trying to rebuild them.” says Nate. “At the age of 20 I was diagnosed with cancer (Hodgkins Lymphona). I went through chemo and raditation and was deemed cured after 2 years.” Since then Nate has served an LDS mission, graduated from Brigham Young University in Industrial Design, and got married. Two years into the Industrial Design program my wife and I had our first boy. Nate and his family still reside in Utah. They have 2 boys and another boy due in 2 weeks ;)

Nate has worked with Taylormade Golf, Tupperware, Ogio, General Electric, and is currently the Product Design Manager at Handstand Inc.

Nate also plans to help with tutorials where he can. He’s got skills, so look out, and if you ever want to ping him, you’re sure to find him lurking around in the forums helping out another new member to the idsketching community. He’s got a good heart, a passion for design, and a keen knack for sketching as well.

We’re planning a few good things here and there in the near future that hopefully will help simplify, streamline, and make things smoother for everyone here. We’re excited for the new year and what’s ahead. So, without further ado, here’s some of Nate’s work -
