About

I am a CAD designer in the Inland Northwest. My background in knife and tool design with Buck Knives has helped me gain a better sense of what a customer looks for in a product that they will use daily. I have been able to be part of the development of both core projects and special projects. My schooling at North Idaho College helped me to learn mechanical design concepts that are heavily influenced by manufacturing, as well as multiple CAD programs like SolidWorks, Inventor, and AutoCAD.
