About

Engineer with a mid-sized manufacturer of replacement components for rotary bottle filling and bottle capping equipment.

Previously owned and operated a small general machine shop for 10 years. We produced custom machined components for local businesses. The day to day was mostly machining related. I did design and build custom products. I'm particularly proud of is the Minute Man wheel lift. It was designed for repossession companies to transform any 3/4 ton and larger pickup truck into a tow truck.

After my entrepreneurial days I worked as a machinist, CNC programmer & Manufacturing Engineer for a international corporation that produced valves, seals & pumps for diverse applications. I worked my way into an Manufacturing Engineering position over a 9-1/2 year span.

My current position as an Engineer is quite diverse. I wear many hats that pull from my many years of manufacturing experience. This experience has proven very valuable to create functional designs using SolidWorks. Within these functional designs I ensure that the components are designed for ease of manufacturing.
