An Uncommon Combination
of broad technical expertise, intuitive design sense, and bottomless creativity. An efficient solution for projects and clients large and small.
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 worked in several fields including aircraft simulation, robotics, industrial gearing, consumer product design and graphic design. Now based in Tulsa, OK, I work full time on a per-project basis.
I am married with a new daughter, and working from home gives me flexibility to provide fast turnarounds for my clients without missing out on this exciting stage of life. I am also rooted in the flourishing open-source and maker communities here in Tulsa, with a strong interest in modern digital manufacturing.
Mechanical Engineering and CAD
I use SolidWorks for CAD, manufacturing drawings, and design analysis. I have done everything from single, optimized parts to complex assemblies with hundreds of components from many suppliers.
Many of my clients are entrepreneurs with just an idea or a crude prototype, and I enjoy helping them flesh their ideas out into polished, manufacturable, market-ready products.
I have a host of tools at my disposal for making prototypes of almost any design. From 3D printing to custom electronics, if we can imagine it I can build you a prototype.
Special purpose mixer using disposable mixing cups that are pre-filled with powder. Metered water is added and mixing is accomplished automatically. Low volume prototype.
Automatically opens and closes vertical blinds in response to the daylight cycle. Designed for Instructables.com
A free-floating, balanced mechanism moves in two directions. Custom multi-temperature lighting with programmable full-color night light effects.
A harmonic gear box built around a low-cost , high-torque brushless motor. 23:1 reduction in a minimally small package, intended for use as a robotic joint. Two integrated ball bearings and fan. All 3D-printable components.
5-gallon blow molded racing fuel jug with cap and volume markings, custom design.
3D printed single-piece business card holder with spring clip. 3D model available for free download.
A multi-agent control demonstration system. I did 100% of the design from the chassis to the PCB layout to the camera feedback system.
A tool to remove glass fuses from old fuse panels. Includes a flashlight, two magnets, and a storage area for spare fuses.
A 200mm quadcopter frame with some special design constraints--to be printable on a hobby-grade 3D printer, to have much better racing aerodynamics than the typical flat-plate frames, and to get maximum stiffness and strength out of inexpensive materials. Unfortunately, it was destroyed in a crash before photographing it, but you can see the video linked below.
