Industrial design graduate eager to design for a better tomorrow. Quick to master new technologies and processes. A team player with over 6 years of additive manufacturing and 3D digital design experience; Eager to support innovation by finding new and creative applications for these skills.
Product design, industrial science, 3D solid modeling (CAD), rapid prototyping, model development, computer graphic imaging, technical drawing, rapid visualization, robotics in conceptual design.
Digital Manufacturing Designer (August 2018 – present)
Contributed software and process design guidance leading to increased digital production throughput efficiencies up to 30%. Provided feedback which guided new product releases and internal software development. Worked closely with R&D, Manufacturing, and Software engineers. Designed numerous custom lenses concurrently with high attention to detail, and generated 3D printed assets for production of Earlens hearing aid systems. Used creative and problem-solving skills to find solutions for fitting the lenses into more challenging anatomies. Supported digital manufacturing lab consisting of various SLA and CLIP 3D printers. Tested new 3D printing materials for various applications.
Assembler IV (January 2018 – August 2018)
Continuing work from previous roles in direct hire position; Responsible for supporting day-to-day activities in 3D Printing/Digital Manufacturing Lab, including 3D scanning, and other 3D printing activities (Build setup, process monitoring, post-processing, and printed part inspection)
Manufacturing Engineering Technician (August 2017 – January 2018)
Primarily focused on supporting production as well as various R&D projects. SLA/CLIP 3D print automation testing, production/R&D 3D print setup, 3D print post-processing, 3D printed part inspection, 3D scanning ear impressions, 3D printer process monitoring, 3D print/3D scan metrics, and new employee/intern training.
Assembler I (March 2017 – August 2017)
SLA/CLIP 3D print post-processing and 3D scanning. 3D printed part inspection, and passing parts down assembly line to CER or other destination.
PC hardware/software/network repairs, 3D design/scanning/printing, and self-hosted webmaster. Managed multiple computer repair and 3D printing jobs concurrently, while completing each job efficiently and on time. Regularly maintained, repaired, and upgraded open source desktop FDM 3D printers. Please also see my old Yelp page for some reviews of my services. Eventually retired these services in order to provide sharper focus to working with Earlens.
Preferred Vendor: Provided 3D printed parts on contract basis for orders submitted to Fictiv for fulfillment. Managed a growing shop of four (personally owned) FDM style 3D printers for producing various parts of all shapes and sizes. Fast response time to new job requests, and efficient order completion.
PC hardware/software repairs, house calls, remote help desk support, appointment scheduling, invoicing, authored newsletter, and trained interns and new hires.
