I am a mechanical engineer specializing in CAD design, FEA, injection molding, manufacturing, Quality Assurance, and product development. 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.
I have successfully brought multiple consumer products to market, designed drones and 3D printed toys, and worked for the naval nuclear laboratory. I have created structural integrity 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 products live up to all national and international safety standards. I have also been responsible for the direct design of new products, handling everything from initial CAD modeling and prototyping to working with Chinese partners and ensuring components are ready for injection molding and mass manufacture.
