Anyway..... to answer your question..... until today, my most recent job has been as a Vehicle Architect at Ford Motor. It was a position that required me to interact with the engineers designing the parts and systems, the Studio guys putting the shapes to the inside/outside, and the various attribute teams (safety, handling, aerodynamics, NVH, etc).....and lead the resolution of inherent conflicts by balancing the various tradeoffs involved.....and keeping in mind the various cost, weight and investment targets. All this given certain platform and timing constraints. A very interesting job..... :) I was responsible for the team putting together the Fusion, for example.




"It is the pervading law of all things organic and inorganic,
Of all things physical and metaphysical,
Of all things human and all things super-human,
Of all true manifestations of the head,
Of the heart, of the soul,
That the life is recognizable in its expression,
That form ever follows function. This is the law."
