As a mechanical design engineer, my expertise lies in the design and development of automated machines, robotic systems, and scientific instrumentation. Over the past 20 years, I have worked on a variety of applications across several industries (factory floor assembly machines for scientific and consumer products, packaging machinery, and general automation). My work these days mostly focuses on custom machinery for new manufacturing processes or adding automation to existing manual processes.
The crux of my automation consulting expertise lies in being able to quickly understand the client’s needs (and often, more comprehensively than they do). Experience allows me to pick up a project at any point, from the conceptual brainstorming phase to full-scale prototypes.
As an independent machine designer, I team with controls engineers while drawing from specialists and vendors when necessary. I work on a wide range of projects from smaller commercial off-the-shelf designs through complete custom solutions.
