Mechanical Engineer, SolidWorks, Product Development

I have been a product design and development engineer for 25 yrs. I am expert level CATIA. I also have a Solidworks CSWA and seat. I am familiar with taking products from concept to deliverable, small scale production to large scale production. I have shop floor experience as a machinist (before my BSME), so I bring a very practical perspective and approach. This works to assure parts/systems are made as intended. Over the past 25 yrs I have worked with parts made in all different processes: CNC, composite lay-up, bent sheet metal, injection molding and 3D printing. Each has it's pros and cons depending on the part and production goal.

Familiar products I have worked on:

Boeing 777: Floor structure & engine flight test hardware.

HondaJet: Empennage; vertical and horizontal fixed and control surfaces. Complete modeling converting from proof of concept test article to a manufacturable product. Designed internal ground plane and racks for avionic/electronic equipment.

DeWalt Tools: Pneumatic Nail Gun (frame, 15 & 16 gauge), modeled the pressure vessels per industrial design direction and fine tuned the models to a perfect balance when loaded with internals.

GE: Thrust Reversers

Daimler/Freightliner/American LaFrance: Firetruck front and side chrome plated plastic grilles.

Boeing-Space: Rocket Nozzles, break-thru R&D with early carbon composites (wrt manufacturing). My first engineering job. And why we see so much carbon-carbon composites used in products we use today.

These projects were all proprietary and I respect whatever NDA's I've had to sign. But I can say they were all fun. Most of my work has been in aerospace, where the demand for quality is the standard others are judged by. High quality was instilled early in my engineering DNA. GD&T per ANSI 14.5

I like doing engineering design/development work and am I'm good at it. Most of my career, I have worked contracts on location. I am now set up to offer you an online one stop engineering shop.

Work Terms

Open, depending on the project; hourly or milestones.
