Product Design Engineer
& Design consultant
Companies, startups and independent inventors rely on me to turn their ideas into actual beautiful and working products.
I use a proactive, independently minded approach to solving design problems. Often provide answers to “impossible” design problems by changing the question, or by way of other “out of the box” creative approaches.
My role is to generate a pleasant design that can meet sometimes conflicting goals like cost, function, aesthetics, manufacturability and marketing.
I can balance all the compromises in order to deliver the best possible product for you and your clients.
I can easily realize a prototype of the product using Rapid Prototyping technology, CNC machining, or both. These kind of samples are a critical part of the design process. It allows the customer to evaluate the merits of the new product, and the engineering team to check the integrity design.
