If you are just looking for a guy to fill a slot in your org chart, I am not your guy.

Orange, CA 92865


I can do so many different things and all the while looking for the most cost/time efficient way. My greatest delight is packaging a circuit board in a difficult enclosure. I enjoy new challenges and objectives. My best day is when I discover a great way to fix a product or just mop up a water leak and get things going again.

I am contrary, when somebody says that a part does not exist or can't find it, I go on a quest to find it. I am a trouble shooter and a lab rat, I love to build fixtures and test equipment using data acquisition, hydraulics, pneumatics, optics, servos.

I really enjoy finding out how things work. I like being prepared for problems too. I look for problems before they happen. (Proactive) Work directly with scientists and engineers to design, build and troubleshoot analog, digital, optical and RF electronics and electrical equipment.

Basic skills in working with sheet metal, lathe and mill. Conduct product verification, validation & qualification testing for compliance with regulatory standards. Development of test methods and collection of data. Prepare, set up and conduct experiments and tests. Authorised to work in the US for any employer
