I have a passion for design and manufacturing, especially working with end users to get solutions in their hands. My background in various technical skills and ability to visualize solutions has given me a unique ability to both design and manufacture prototypes.

I would like to continue to work in the field of research and development with a company that can recognize new ideas and support research in them. I have worked extensively in products for the defense industry and enjoy that field, but I know I would enjoy working wherever growth is happening and I can bring value to a company.
