I specialize in Product Design and Development, with an emphasis on mechanical design, manufacturing, and ideation. It is my belief that good products arise from working through the design process and I am skilled at all phases of the product development lifecycle, from concept and prototyping through volume production.
I have designed production parts using a wide variety of manufacturing processes with both foreign and domestic vendors, and can estimate tooling and part costs with reasonable accuracy in the early phases of development. I am comfortable interacting directly with clients, vendors, investors, and potential customers.
I place a strong emphasis on the creative/conceptual phases of a project, including human factors and user experience. I enjoy collaboration with talented Industrial Designers to ensure that products are the very best that they can be.
I have 16 years experience using Solidworks as my primary CAD system for 3D modeling, and employ various advanced techniques including master modeling, complex surfacing, and multi-part assemblies.
More than anything, I enjoy blank-slate projects where the goal is to innovate and impress, to design products that stand apart from the competition.
When I'm not designing or building things, I enjoy taking pictures, falling and flying through the air, climbing big rocks, playing with fun vehicles, exploring new places, and unique t-shirts.
