For the past 20 years, I have worked independently as a designer and fabricator of mechanical devices for science museums, private collections, the vending industry, marine, and medical equipment field. With my background in mechanical and electrical engineering technology, I have a strong interest in research and development. I have extensive hands on experience in layout, design, fabrication and trouble shooting, in addition to knowledge of materials, welding, and machine shop practices.
