About

Senior mechanical designer, product development engineer, program manager and engineering director with 20+ years of Solidworks experience. In my career, I have been part of launching hundreds of new products either from the design aspect or leadership side of the launch. My inventiveness and meticulous attention to detail have lead to many very successful products in different markets including fleet and forestry. Some of these designs have been granted US, CA, AU and EU patents as well as other patents pending. In addition, several of my 3D printing designs have been shared on Thinginverse with many downloads as well as remixes.

With the support of local fabrication shops and in-house 3D printing, I am able to turn around many prototype designs fairly quickly. If you're looking for drafting, mechanical design or mechanical design all the way through prototyping, I'm the person that can help you out!
