Mechanical Engineer, Service Machines Incorporated

Culver City, CA April 2010 - Present

. Produce research and draft design concepts for a new type of solar

energy project for today's market by looking at the competition and

finding ways to refine the type of technology at a more effective and

cheaper cost.

. Responsible for designing various components of the new solar energy

design including the collector, the stand, and the Stirling engine

using engineering calculations and SolidWorks.

. Use CNC and other shop equipment to create and test the new designed

components and assess their effectiveness.

Mechanical and Civil Field Engineer, Kiewit Pacific- San Vicente Pumping

Facilities, Lakeside, CA July 2008 - July 2009

. Produced extensive work plans detailing the procedure of the operation

including the number of laborers, equipment, timeline, budget, control

points, safety hazards and engineering analysis of the work using

AutoCad, Terra Model and owner's plan files.

. Created computer designs of pipe layouts, structures, vaults, conduits

and roads using AutoCAD and Terra Model

. Managed a crew of 15 laborers and operators at least six weeks in


. Ordered materials, produced work plans, completed engineering

analyses, met with the owner regarding issues or concerns and

maintained the budget to ensure profitability on every operation.

Designer/Materials Eng, Shiley Eye Center - Corneal Tensile Strength of

the Cornea, La Jolla, CA January 2008 - July 2008

. Designed and fabricated a device for renowned LASIK surgeon Dr. David

J. Shanzlin. This device consisted of a pressure transducer and a

laser micrometer and is designed to test the cornea under different

pressure loads.

. Programmed the pressure transducer and laser micrometer with LabView,

allowing the user to enter a pressure, varying frequency speed

(Hertz), and total running time to generate a real time graphical

analysis that would then be recorded onto an Excel file.

. By reviewing this information, Dr. Shanzlin and his research team aim

to discover the elastic properties of the cornea that will allow him

to provide a more precise cut during a LASIK surgery procedure.

Fabricator/Designer, MAE Department, University of California, San Diego,

La Jolla, CA September 2007 - March 2008

. Using phototransistors, microcontrollers, actuators, and various other

electrical components, our team designed and built a robot that sensed

different colored blocks and drew an outline of them with their

respective colors.

. The final robot was achieved through extensive metal and plastic

fabrication, LaserCamm, and engineering analysis.

. This course included extensive machine shop usage and understanding of

various metal/plastic forming and shaping equipment.
