without the overhead
My uncommon combination of broad technical expertise,
intuitive design sense, and bottomless creativity makes me
an efficient a-la-carte resource for projects large and small.
I can help you analyze your design whether it's a single, optimized part or a complex assemblies with components from many suppliers.
I enjoy helping entrepreneurs flesh out their ideas from rough prototype to manufacturable, market-ready products.
2D & 3D CAD
I primarily use SolidWorks for CAD and design, with exports usually in PDF, 3D PDF, and STEP formats.
Design for Molding
I can help you create or modify part designs to be manufacturable via injection-, blow-, compression-, or roto-molding.
I have a host of tools at my disposal for making prototypes of almost any design from 3D printing to custom electronics.
I can help you measure and quantify your competitor's product so that you can improve on it with your own design.

"Drew has been very helpful with our products.
His designs are very functional and innovative.
He provides insightful guidance on materials and works closely with the mold manufacturers to solve any issues that may arise."

Since 2014 I have been providing contract engineering and CAD services on a per-project basis to customers around the country from my home in Tulsa, OK. I have an MS in Mechanical Engineering from University of Texas at Arlington, and a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. I have previously worked in several fields including injection molding, aircraft simulation, robotics, industrial gearing, consumer product design and graphic design.
