Hi! I’m Steven.

In 2016 I created Show it Better because I believed that the first step to great architecture, is knowing how to communicate it.

Unfortunately, at the time there wasn't a place where you could learn how to visually communicate your architectural ideas. So I created a YouTube channel where I could create free quality content for everyone to learn architectural representation. 

In this course about sections, I'm really excited to show you how to create three different section styles and how to do this in less than three hours! 

I believe sections (and floor plans) are the best way to understand how a building works. And if you know how to represent a section well, then you can really call yourself an architect! (just kidding)

But, if you believe that the section is a powerful tool to design and communicate ideas, join me in this course to find out how to create these section styles and blow up your visual game!
