I am a Mechanical Design Engineer (BSME) with a technical concentration in mechanical systems and design. I have primarily worked on NASA programs for the duration of my tenure as a design engineer. I have worked on and contributed to the success of some very high profile NASA projects. It was an honor to be a part of those teams and to work with those people.
Design engineers, by nature have a strong passion for knowledge and understanding of the things that surround us in our daily lives. Like most engineers, I possess a sincere desire for contributing in a design engineering environment and all that it entails. I have a thirst for increasing my skills as it only serves to make life easier on myself with respect to the task at hand and the teams with which I work.
I believe that the best designs are not the result of one person's efforts, but a culmination of the ideals of a team that communicates in a dynamic and structured environment.
I have a excellent interpersonal skills and can communicate my ideals and designs in written or spoken forums.
I am a self starter and need little direction in my daily duties. I have a strong work ethic and morals that support me in my professional and personal life.
I look forward to every engineering problem as an opportunity to learn from those around me and the knowledge they have as subject matter experts.
If you are looking for a design engineer with these qualities, please feel free to contact me to discuss the opportunity or needs you have.
