About

Experienced mechanical design engineer eager to make your idea a success. Whether it is producing a 3D CAD model from a sketch, creating a prototype ready for 3D printing, or developing a product solution ready for large scale manufacturing, I can help you in your development process.

Certified SolidWorks professional. Skilled in 3D CAD modeling and 2D manufacturing drawings, mechanical design, geometric dimensioning & tolerancing, design for manufacturing, FEA simulation, 3D printing and prototyping. Comfortable with creating and working with complex assemblies, design tables, and tolerance stack-ups. I can also create illustrations such as renderings or 3D animations to help market your product.

Proven innovator through two issued U.S. patents for lateral spine implant expandable devices. 5+ years of experience working directly with customers on engineering unique designs.
