2012-Present

Currently operating within a mechanical engineering role, I am collaborating with electrical, hardware, and layout engineers to design and develop a variety of consumer electronics for use in the fitness industry. I am often responsible for the top level design of an assembly, as well as the design of its required mechanical components. Using Solidworks, I design injection molded plastic enclosures, compression molded bumpers and buttons, sheet metal brackets, graphic overlays, cables, packaging, and other required parts. Through rapid prototyping and iterative design, we are adding value to fitness consoles by incorporating novel technologies such as back-lit capacitive sensing controls. Designing products for ease of assembly as well as creating clear assembly documentation is critical to directly support our manufacturing facilities in Mexico and China.
