Besides my wide array of general skills I am intriged by certain skills more than others. Below is a representation of the skills that I am most interested in and find myself to be more proficient in.
Although education is important, I believe experience provides higher benefit and reward. Below is a summary of my work and education experiences.
Jan 2013 - Present
Working for Solberg I saw the need for better processes and procedures. I developed and implemented a system for widespread engineering control and function. Clockwork is best mistake free.
Jan 2009 - Dec 2012
As a project engineer you begin working outside of a focused engineering position. When working for a small business you have more opportunity to experience functions and procedures of other roles. In this role I managed projects and orders, the importance is not paying too much attention to details and making sure deadlines are met.
Jan 2006 - Dec 2008
I began my career working at Solberg, it is a great small business with a strong foundation. As a manufacturing engineer, I was mostly working in product and part design. I polished my CAD skills and ventured into 3D modeling.
June 2005 - August 2005
I chose Solberg Manufacturing to complete my internship program for school. During my internship I experienced engineering procedures, drafting protocol, product/part design, product testing, machine repairs, and inter-company relations.
1998 - 2005
The manufacturing plant I grew up in, many memories and much of my knowledge started here. Back in 1956 my grandpa started a wood working company and it evolved into a high production wood awards and components manufacturing business. As a kid I worked here during summers - this is where I became passionate for engineering design and building. I performed machine design & maintenance, part design, machine operation, plant maintenance, office IT, and was a lunch room entertainer.
2002 - 2005
Located in west central Illinois. I attended WIU to grow my engineering knowledge and hands-on experiences. While focusing on my studies I also built some great friendships. This was a key part to my future career.
1998 - 2002
Located in a suburb of Chicago, it is known as one of America's best high schools.
Working on at home technology, engineering, and design projects are my hobbies. Below are a few recent projects I have completed or am still working on.
Stringer and floor replacement in 1989 Baja Sport 226 off-shore boat. Boat is 24' long and powered by Mercruiser 454 Magnum, Bravo 1, cruises at +65 mph.
