Experienced engineer with over 10 years experience as a product development design engineer. I utilize the latest version of SolidWorks 3D modeling software to build, analyze, test and generate professional engineering drawings. I also assist in the prototype phase in order to make sure that first article built is errors free and is ready for next phase of production.
