About

Manufacturing has always been a big part of my life. Since starting as a tool and die apprentice in 1998 I have always absorbed as much knowledge as possible. Every stop in my journey has taught me what works, and more importantly, what doesn’t work in the manufacturing flow. Being as lean and streamlined as possible is the only way to stay competitive in the ever changing manufacturing world.

My diverse background as a machinist, manufacturing engineer and entrepreneur has prepared me to help clients of all sizes identify and eliminate waste in their workflow.
