CV

I received a Bachelor's of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Michigan Technological University in 1999 and has 19 years of experience in CAD CAM FEA, SEA modeling, test correlation, sound package development, material testing, and NVH diagnostics. Prior to starting TMC Engineering, I worked for an automotive interior supplier as a Senior NVH Engineer, performing CAE engineering and managing the NVH test laboratory. In this role, I conducted full vehicle, component and material testing, and managed a full suite of testing facilities including a 4 wheel drive dynamometer in a hemi-anechoic chamber, reverberation room, transmission loss suite and quiet chamber. 

 

My skill set reaches outside of engineering, with hands-on experience and practical knowledge. Growing up, I worked with my Dad in the family workshop and later restored a 1984 Camaro. While at Michigan Tech, I was an active member of the Formula SAE team and gained hands on skills in design and manufacturing, learning how to make parts on mills, lathes, welders and other machinery.  I am is equally comfortable at a computer or in a workshop.

I also contribute at my local makerspace.  I teach classes, help members complete their projects, and maintain equipment.  I also lead a weekly electronics night meetup.
