About

Let me be the first to welcome you to All-Out Designs. I'm sure you want to know who you will be working with. Here is a little bit about me.

I hold a Masters of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Montana State University in Bozeman. My design background started much earlier than that when fabricating custom utility trailers in high school. I have a knack for all things mechanical which is what lead me to obtain my Engineering degree. My experiences consist of both strictly design and fabrication as well. The industries in which I've obtained my experience are broad, starting in Oil & Gas, moving to DoD, most recently in Aerospace. I've led diverse teams as a manager, and also worked right next to production running CNC machines. Not only can I help you with the design, but I know what it takes to make them as well. Please find me on LinkedIn for a more detailed description of my background.

Thank you, and I look forward to doing business with you!
