Bright honest individual with the knowledge, experience and passion to excel in any work environment
My education along with my personal and professional background, has made me well-disciplined in a very wide array of professions. I have extensive experience in multiple management roles, multiple material fabrication, welding, machining, product design, product testing, solidworks, drafting, engineering, rapid prototyping, manufacturing, quality control, automotive technology, performance automotive technology and vehicle restoration. While in the years of working to perfect my skills, I have designed and manufactured dozens of successful performance vehicle parts for both street and competition vehicles. I have also managed the build of several race and show vehicles for private individuals and large companies.
I am looking forward to the time when we can meet and discuss how my background can fit your needs.
