I am an experienced product development expert, with expertise in both product and service industries. A degreed engineer (BSEE), I perform analog and digital electronic circuit design, software/mobile app/firmware development, database development, and 3D mechanical design. In engineering management, I resolve complex technology decisions, understand large technology purchases, and have managed large budgets. I understand FDA design controls and ISO requirements. I've managed products in a marketing capacity, and am an accomplished project manager. I know what constitutes "Done," understanding every technical and creative task.

  • Senior Member Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)
  • Member of the Apple Developer's Program
  • Amateur Radio Extra License

My leadership focus is strong yet personable. I have excellent team-building and conflict-management skills and know-how to develop technical staff.

For continuous improvement, I have multiple Six Sigma Green Belts, for both DMAIC/Lean and DFSS, and am a certified Six Sigma Black Belt (CSSBB).

My creative side includes writing, music, and photography. I have shown my fine-art photographs in regional area events. I am a drummer and a singer and have performed publicly in local bands.

"An engineer with a creative side."

I have a small business providing electrical system engineering, design, R&D, modeling, prototyping, and networking services. Some of my past projects include an undersea power and communication junction box for an undersea observatory application, fiber optic delay line, an undersea transceiver design study, an actuator driver, and adapting software to control a 6 axis alignment robot.

Before consulting, I worked at AT&T bell laboratories and Lucent Technologies designing undersea telecommunication and optical networking hardware. I co-founded Red Sky Systems which made regional undersea systems.

When I'm not consulting, I study nanotechnology to develop my own products (graphene based terahertz light source). This effort has led to learning Mathematica for modeling device physics and learning to fabricate devices at a nanofab. To learn more, please see my profile on LinkedIn.
