About

I specializes in taking ideas from concept to production. I do this by evaluating the clients' design ideas to determine the feasibility, cost, and manufacturing requirements of each project. I can also assist in developing the tooling needed to manufacture the final product. Currently, I uses CATIA V5, SolidWorks, and Inventor to innovate designs.
