Product Design Engineer - Consumer Products, Injection Molding, 3D CAD & Prototyping.
Please see my upwork page for a longer history of reviews and past experience.
10 years of heavy CAD modeling experience and am well versed in all disciplines connected to design and engineering. My background has primarily been focused on consumer plastic products, electronics and medical equipment.
Upon graduating from the University of Michigan I joined a team developing medical electronic equipment and later became the Lead Industrial Designer. On that team I worked along side engineers to develop products from the circuit board up. The plastic injection-molded parts had to conform to production standards and assembly constraints. I will apply these high industrial standards and attention to detail on every project I take on. I can produce production ready ISO-128 and GD&T drawings as well.
I have been part of large companies and start-ups. I understand the constraints put on business not just from the design perspective. While I was part of my previous start-up, I was responsible for several tasks and long term projects at once. I use this same work ethic throughout the course of all projects.
I work with Solidworks but have good experience using Rhino 3D and AutoCAD. Aside from my professional career in consumer products, I grew up working with metal and wood fabrication which has provided me with a strong understanding of varying materials early on. I can advise you on the best plastics, glues or solvents used to get the job done.
Highly interested in long term work. I take my work seriously. I am at my computer every work day, standard work hours. I am available to work weekends if requested. This is my job and my career, if you are looking for cheap labor please look elsewhere. Please see my website for more projects not shown on this profile. I have many years of professional design and manufacturing experience, if you are interested please feel free to ask, I will not bite.
