From early childhood, Opey loved to draw and do artwork. Growing up, he wanted to go into a profession where he could apply his talent in drawing - in the mountains of east Tennessee, the only option that was available was “Drafting,” and it was taught in full at his high school. After enrolling, and given the ability to draw for a profession, he knew this would be his chosen occupation.
Opey went on to continue his education at East Tennessee University in Mechanical Engineering and later to complete an AS Degree in AutoCAD Design. He has over 15 years of Board Drafting and 17 years of AutoCAD experience in study of Architectural, Mechanical, Structural, Electrical, and Custom Millwork, with Architectural design being his first love.
On his off time, for relaxation, his hobbies include playing guitar and piano, camping, fishing, archery, world travel, and dancing.
