Grew up taking things apart and haven't stopped finding better ways of rebuilding them.
My experience covers a broad scope of development levels, from initial concept generation through final manufacturing and production release. I have worked in many industries including Consumer electronics, Commercial Lighting, and Industrial Robotics.
With this diverse set of experiences, I have an equally diverse network that I am able to call upon to add further context and insight to any project. During development, I am often able to incorporate final design and manufacturing elements early on which has helped to reduce turnaround time and production delays.
