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

Electronics is of course, my main gig, Schematics, PCB design, mechanical design, assembly. Test fixtures using data acquisition, hydraulics,pneumatics, servos, lasers, optics. Work directly with scientists and engineers to design, build and troubleshoot analog, digital, embedded, program, electro-optical and RF electronics and good old electrical equipment. Basic skills in working with sheet metal, lathe and mill. Development of test methods and collection of data. Conduct verification, validation & qualification testing for compliance with regulatory standards. i.e. FDA 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 have been studying electronics before Jr. high and through out high school and collage too.
