Kensington, Ca ***** C: 510-***-****


Accomplished engineer with over 18 years experience in the space systems design industry. I have a unique blend of

space systems engineering and project management covering: spacecraft, aircraft, launch vehicles, satellites, and test

facilities with commercial, civil and military customers.

Among my peers I'm known for being an adept problem solver with comprehensive expertise in Satellite systems at both

the system and subsystem levels. My design experience is vast, my schematics knowledge is second to none, and my

extensive engineering background is global.


Space Systems Electrical Integrated Schematics

Project Management Engineering Management

Systems Engineering Satellite Design

Spacecraft Orbit Mechanics/Dynamics



Successfully designed system level electrical integrated schematics for over 100 spacecraft.

Redesigned company project and process flow to focus on initial quality design to include early audits. Resulted

in 50% reduction in costly revisions.

Hand-selected by executive management to serve as lead designer for all spacecraft. Support multi-system

simulation activities including threat technology

continuously promoted to higher levels of responsibility due to quality of engineering work and demonstrated

leadership ability.

Professional Experience

Senior Space Systems Design Engineer 12/2006 to 03/2016

Space Systems/Loral Palo Alto, CA

Develop system level electrical integrated schematics for satellite program.

Successfully manage multinational aerospace projects for U.S. and international customers.

Manage real-time failure contingency process during launch anomalies to ensure successful recovery of satellite


Collaborate with multidisciplinary engineering teams to design structural modifications of aircraft and systems.

Engineer structural modifications for the following: XM Radio, IntelSat, Asia Sat, Siruis, Optus, Spain Sat and

numerous other satellites.

Use 2D CAD modeling tools to design and improve systems meeting FAA standards; communicate with

regulatory authorities for approvals on design deviations.

Troubleshoot systems to resolve complex issues relating to interpretation of design data.

Create drawing time-lines, instructions, specifications and documentation for programs and equipment, devices

and parts for commercial systems.

Prepare technical reports summarizing work performed and results.

Perform thorough data and ECO (engineering change order) review and demonstrate follow-through on issues.

Analyze interconnects for system reliability as inputs are collected and verify them against the intended design.

Manage work-flow of 10 member engineering team.

Senior Research and Development Engineer 02/2004 to 12/2006

Space Systems/Loral Palo Alto, CA

Planned development of integrated schematics for satellite programs.

Produced schedules and time-lines for release of soft and hard copy of schematics.

Managed efforts of all part-time and temporary support staff required to produce large volume schematics.

Created drawings using ORCAD Capture and maintained control of revisions.

Interacted with STE, VE, Database, and Harness Engineering to facilitate S/C integration and integrity of


Addressed critical issues to prevent delays in production schedules.

Assessed integrity /interplay of database, wirelists, ICDs, ECOs, and STIRs during schematics development.

Managed design reviews of new harness, wirelists, and schematics engineering tools and provided assessment

With respect to program adoption.

Senior Design Engineer 06/2000 to 02/2004

Space Systems/Loral Palo Alto, CA

Planned schedules for release of schematic books and assisted in cost estimates for schematic development.

Collected basic data (thermistor and heater lists, ICDs, SCE tray stack, block diagrams, etc.) and prepared

schematic layouts for all subsystems (Comm, Power, ADCS, SCE, Mechanisms and Thermal).

Reviewed ICDs and developed functional circuit representations for schematics.

Incorporated database and wirelist information into layouts.

Analyzed layouts for design errors (wiring and database errors) and informed appropriate group when corrective

action was necessary for ECO generation.

Maintained current schematics on the schematic web page.

Analyzed ECOs and determined required changes to the schematics across appropriate programs.

Managed release of each book: generated master, coordinated appropriate program cover, coordinated

reproduction and distribution.

Design Engineer 09/1997 to 06/2000

Space Systems/Loral Palo Alto, CA

Collaborated with design team to bring concept to visualization.

Coordinated with reproduction and art departments.

Prepared technical reports summarizing work performed and results.

Maintained, improved, and documented the schematics development process.

Maintained open channels of communication between programs and departments for common issues.
