passionate mechanical engineer with 5 years of automotive design and product prototyping experience. I've done design work and testing for OEMs as well as design work for Formula SAE cars and one off racecars and custom engineered cars.

I've designed parts to be made using every manufacturing method, sheetmetal, 2d and 3d subractive, additive (SLA,FDM,SLS, etc.) and will make the necessary DFM decisions based on your needs.

Every part i make will be 100% analysed for it's design specifications (FEA, CFD, etc) , with function and form developed for it's use case.


  • Mechanical Design Engineer Intern EcoTech Marine · Internship May 2019 – Sep 2019 4 mos Allentown, PA, United States Worked on many proof of concept R&D projects, manufacturing flow analysis projects, failure analysis investigations, and prototyping. I worked with many different manufacturing methods, mainly using manual and CNC milling machines and additive (SLA and FDM) processes. Assisted with the design and prototyping of a new modular reptile care product line.
  • Calibrations and Performance Engineering Co-op EControls · Internship May 2018 – Dec 2018 7 mos San Antonio, TX, United States As a Calibration and Performance Engineering Intern, I worked on a number of projects that include piston design, engine calibration for a number of different applications. I created flow models for assorted valves and throttles, calibrated various emissions control systems, and performed design analysis for fuel, EGR, turbocharger, and intake systems. I also worked with and reported to customers about design changes, project updates, and scope clarifications.
  • Powertrain Design Lead Lehigh University Formula SAE · Full-time Nov 2015 – May 2018 2 yrs 6 mos Bethlehem, PA, United States My key responsibilities were designing, testing, and the manufacturing of engine and powertrain components as well as calibration of the engine controller and managing the Engine and Drivetrain teams. I helped rebuild the team, going from a DNF (did not finish) my first year to our team's first all events finish and winning an energy management award my third. Created many training documents and am continuing to mentor the current Engine Team and help from a consultant position.
