PROFILE

Summary

Think of me as an "Industrial Engineering Department in a can." I provide all aspects of manufacturing engineering and project management to aid companies through times of rapid growth.

I have thirty plus years of design and manufacturing experience across several
manufacturing sectors including electro-mechanical telecom safety devices, molded fiber packaging, metal can, textile forming, shipbuilding, ship repairing and retrofitting, secondary wood products, metal working, medical devices, aerospace and automotive products.

As an inventor and innovator, I have designed and patented several consumer products in use today. I am a process improvement expert who has used tools and techniques to turn around under-performing facilities, however, I specialize in alleviating growing pains.
