I am a mechanical engineer specializing in FEA, injection molding, manufacturing, Quality Assurance, and product design. I have a Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University and a Bachelor's degree in Physics and Art. This background has given me a great skill set for analyzing and tackling the engineering problems in mechanical design/product design.
In the past year, I have had two consumer products successfully reach market with the 4moms brand. One of my main responsibilities while a mechanical engineer there was ensuring the integrity of 4moms' consumer products. I created simulations utilizing software packages such as ANSYS and Space Claim and improved the design of components so they will have a long life. In addition I designed, ran and analyzed tests to ensure that our products live up to all national and international safety standards. I was also responsible for the direct design of new products, handling everything from initial CAD modeling and prototyping to working with our Chinese partners and ensuring components are ready for injection molding and mass manufacture.
