About

I am an engineer with a broad background of knowledge based on work experience.

Starting my career in Aeronautical Engineering for almost two years developing skills in ProE designing, modeling and testing of materials and their implementation. Previous designs in the field of aerospace engineering include the design of a high pressure air system required to test a flight vehicle in high altitude conditions. The high pressure air system required pressure vessels to sustain the operation of the test, and were calculated to be too costly, however using recycled vessels were considered. The recycled vessels then needed to be tested before being put into service on the system. This meant cutting several critical failure sections of the pressure vessel and sending it for tensile, compression, modulus lab data. This data would then need to be scrutinized to the calculated data based on pressure vessel code and good design practice, safety factors etc. The delivery system was then modeled in ProE Creo software to be delivered to in-house machinists for material ordering and assembly, but not until modeled in AnSYS modeling comparison. This system was successfully commissioned by a engineering team effort with my design engineering assistance.

Creating databases to clearly log product data, quality reports, team performance, and work load is also one of my skills using Microsoft Office Access. The custom code i wrote in VBA to easily track and print weekly data that would be discussed at design meetings in an effort to improve overall team efficiency.

Using ProE to design flight vehicles for test models was also a key piece of experience to tune my design experience in fluid dynamics. As the design went from pencil and paper theoretical calculations, they were transformed into models, later tested by my team and then a full size model delivered to the customer, NASA, for field testing.

Many points of aeronautical engineering experience resides in the modeling done in ProE Creo/Wildfire to develop testing models.

My mechanical engineering design experience comes from a firm mostly pitched towards the development of public & private schools. We design the mechanical, HVAC, electrical, plumbing and fire protection, and civil systems. All of the engineering is done "in the same house" as the architectural design. My experience circumvents all of the engineering trades in accordance with NYS education code, the supplements, and the current IMC. Designing systems in my current atmosphere allow for the full design to be implemented without value engineering the design like an EPC. Though EPC's are also part of the job.

Mechanically, I have designed HW/Steam boiler rooms, AHU systems, VRF, and the like. My fire protection experience stemmed from my family business, meaning i physically installed many types of plumbing systems and fire protection systems; it is a critical component to influence my design practice in HASS and/or AutoCAD. Many engineers call it "the third eye." My plumbing design experience resides in all types of waste and domestic systems for commercial kitchens, assisted living facilities, schools, large residences and small, also churches. As much as possible, I use my local contacts in the gas, electrical and water utilities to make my designs as solid as possible. All of my MEP & FPE design are based on maintaining code requirements while not having the customer pay for unnecessary equipment etc.
