As a mechanical engineer with over 30 years of experience, my strongest capability is finding creative solutions to either ambiguous or clear objectives. I enjoy working with clients to define a best fit design by quickly sketching options for consideration, or taking their already defined concept to the next level. I also have a business and manufacturing background, which helps in refinement of the design for cost-effective production.
FIRST JOB: Ron’s Oregon Stone Ground Flour. An all purpose whole wheat flour mill I started when I was 14. I enjoyed applying business classes directly to my growing business. However, at the age of 21, I turned my attention to my true passion in equipment design and enrolled in Mechanical Engineering classes.
FAVORITE LEISURE ACTIVITY: A tie between tinkering in my shop and skiing.
FAVORITE FOOD: Pizza. My guess is this makes me part of a large club.
FAVORITE MOVIE: To Catch a Thief. A 1955 Hitchcock with Cary Grant and Grace Kelly.
