About

Hello! I am an Engineering Manager and Principal Process Engineer in the Industrial Food & Beverage Manufacturing market. For nearing 20 years, I've led Design/Build projects from concept to completion, hands-on in both Project Management and Engineering roles. My start in the industry was through AutoCAD 2D and 3D design work, skills that I'd like to now offer on a freelance basis here. See more at terraconcepts.design.

I'd like to support your projects where you might need an experienced CAD designer intimately familiar with Industrial, Heavy Commercial, Process, Utility, General Construction, and Manufacturing systems. The benefits of using me are rooted in my familiarity with industrial systems and your goals - I design and draw specifically to get things installed by crews, fabricated by shops, and approved by customers.

Project examples include:
2D Layouts, 3D Models of parts or systems, P&I/Ds, Block Flow Diagrams, Control Loop Diagrams, Mechanical Fabrication Prints, Piping Spool / System Drawings, Site Plans, Structural Steel Drawings, General Arrangements, Skid Models, PLC / Electrical Wiring Diagrams, Renderings, Permit Submittals, TI Drawings, Bid RFQ Drawings, and Machine Shop / Weld Shop Drawings. AutoCAD, AutoCAD Plant 3D, AutoCAD Mechanical, Autodesk Process Analysis, Showcase, Fusion 360, NavisWorks, Inventor, Visio, Excel, Word.

I also offer support in Technical Writing and Content Development. Through my experience in Project Management and Marketing Management, I've found content writing to be a challenge for many that I can assist with.

Content Examples include:
Function Narratives and Descriptions, Operating Procedures, Manuals, Product Briefs, Sell Sheets, Brochures, Flyers, Website Content, Email Newsletter Content, Calculation Summaries, Custom Word and Excel Engineering Forms / Templates / Worksheets, and Project Schedules.

Please feel free to inquire with any questions!
