Planetary Power Inc. - Redmond, WA
Position: Powerhead Mechanical Engineer Consultant
May 2012 to Oct 2014
Responsibilities: Work hand in hand with the Senior Scientists on the next generation Mobile Thermal Solar Power Generation
unit. Taking their theories and concepts and working them into reality using state of the art materials, design, 3D modeling,
analysis, machining, brazing, welding and manufacturing techniques. Institute, develop and maintain all files, 3D models,
drawings, assemblies and subassemblies within Vault Workgroup software, remotely for the entire company.
Accomplishments: Worked extensively with an Additive Material Manufacturer ( 3D printing ) to produce micro turbine and
compressor impeller wheels out of Inconel 625. In conjunction with this, the 3D model had to be 100% accurate to ensure the
final " print " would meet the aerodynamic specs of the impellers. This meant pushing modern 3D modeling software to its
limit of accuracy in the model itself and not being reliant on a 2D drawing to convey the concept.
Teledyne Imaging Systems, formally Rockwell Scientific – Camarillo, CA
Position: FPA Packaging Engineer
July 2005 to May 2012
Responsibilities: Take the mechanical lead in all aspects of concept, design, modeling, DFMA, rapid prototyping, schedule,
cost, tolerances, ECR’s, 2D drawings, outsourced sub contractors and vendors for infra red camera designs and cryogenic
vacuum dewars for military, space and civilian applications. Present status, current issues and any other necessary details to all
team leads, department heads, directors, program management, subcontractors, vendors or customers during PDR’s, CDR’s,
MRR’s and any other technical meetings. Work extensively with other engineering departments to assure electromechanical
and optomechanical designs will meet specifications. Understand CTE mismatches and work multiple materials, flexures and
other solutions to optimize concept and design to meet customer goals and specifications by working with stress, thermal and
vibration analysis data, while assuring all specifications meet ASME Y14.5. Identify areas of concern or repeated failure or
damage to parts throughout its life cycle and create tooling accordingly. Tooling could include, machine fixtures, shielding,
assembly fixtures, test fixtures and shipping fixtures. Assist test engineers with test set up and qualification, including
modifications to both tooling and software ( LabVIEW ). Work hands on with assembly and quality assurance on space flight
hardware to analyze and disposition parts through TVA’s, and NCMR’s using ISO 9000 procedures.
Accomplishments: Instituted the PDM vault to control all Solidworks electronic files both 3D models and drawings. Managed
the CAD department setting priorities according to workload and employee skill sets. Gained in depth hands on knowledge of
all FPA manufacturing processes which allowed me to design multiple modular fixtures and tools that aid in die attach,
assembly, wirebond, thermal cycling and optical cryogenic test of assemblies and sub assemblies.

corrective action. Visit suppliers to help them improve their QC procedures and product quality. Discuss all product
applications with end users as well as other companies’ engineers to ensure the best combination of parts for the customers
application. Create specific assembly drawings showing all parts the customer will need and how to install the finished
Accomplishments: Worked with customers on a real time basis while designing custom products. Created, from scratch, the
entire library of company parts in Solidworks. Produced full color catalog, workbooks and multiple letters and instruction
sheets to showcase product, using Solidworks, Photoshop, 3D StudioMax, Pagemaker, Publisher, and Acrobat. Created an
entire quality control system and manual, which can be integrated to ISO 9000 in the future. Set up and organized a part
numbering system for all company products. Kept a five year old server up and running in spite of being obsolete, out of
warranty by the manufacturer and a operating system that was no longer supported.
