I love to draw!
I got into this business thirty plus years ago because I was fascinated with knowing how things work. Thirty years later I am still amazed at the ingenuity that God has given the human mind to create and still enjoy making that which seems complex, easy to understand through clear and concise drawings.
I have had the privilege to work on a large variety of projects for the Big Three and their suppliers, The US postal service, Kraft Foods & The Super Conducting Super Collider in Texas. I have a strong background in Body in White and engine/transmission assembly lines, robotic material handling and welding cells, stand alone welding fixtures and special machines. I have experience as a group leader for crews of designers both on the board and in various computer groups.
I believe my greatest strengths are attention to detail, a wide experience base and an excellent customer service attitude.
Mechanical tool design - From fixtures you can hold in the palm of your hand to complete assembly lines, whatever your automation project, it is likely I have experience that will allow me to meet your mechanical project needs.
2D to 3D drawing conversion - Beginning with a complete 2D drawing package I can create a parametric 3D model and then generate a new 2D drawing package that will be linked to that model. So that automatic updates will happen when either the model or the drawing is altered.
