I am a Mechanical Design Engineer with over 10 years experience in the aerospace industry. I am well versed in the all aspects of the design and development process, from concept development, detailed design, verification analysis, purchasing, manufacturing, assembly, test and maintenance. I have been a team member of numerous mechanical and electro-mechanical projects. I have contributed to the mechanical design and assembly of R&D and space flight projects.
I am passionate about creating things. Whether it's a mechanical design on CAD software or a sewing project at home, I really enjoy working with my hands and building something, especially if it's something that I designed.
I am looking for a challenging mechanical design engineering position, ideally with hands-on work, in a fast-paced dynamic team environment.
