I began my journey into design and engineering services at the age of 13, when I needed to fill an elective course as a freshman in high school. I randomly chose something called "Mechanical Drafting Basics" and the rest is history. After that first class, I had my first taste of purpose in life!! It was art within boundaries, and it was purely fascinating to me. I have never deviated from this path over the last 20+ years, through college, and my career that has spanned various industries. I am now fortunate enough and extremely excited to be in a position to put my skills to work for myself, and for you.
At Sonoma Valley Design Engineering we provide a passion and dedication to design that reflects my values and desire to build long lasting client relationships. My goal is to help you succeed, in any way I can. This is more than a job, this is a lifetime of craft and working towards being the most effective engineering services provider I can be. I hope that we can build a long-lasting relationship that is beneficial to all.
