I am a Mechanical Engineer with a passion for using my skills in mechanical and creative design to help others achieve their goals.

I have 6 years of experience as a designer and project manager working as a Mechanical Engineer for an engineering and manufacturing company in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Clients I have been privileged to work with include Formula 1 racing teams, NASA, various aerospace companies, military organizations, medical companies, and many others.

My experience as a Mechanical Engineer includes R&D, product design/prototyping, CAD, finite element analysis, and drawing generation. Throughout my career, I have had the pleasure of helping others bring their ideas from concept to reality, whether that meant creating a prototype or bringing it to production. I have a strong background in designing for manufacturability, especially CNC milling, laser/waterjet cutting, sheet metal, welding, and 3D printing.
