Interest in product design and development
After joining the US Navy as an Information Systems Technician in 2009, I was stationed in Pearl Harbor, HI for a support position at the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). In 2014, knowing that I wanted to become a creator and desiring more knowledge in the engineering field, I left the Navy (Honorable Discharge) and went back to school at Cuesta College and then transferred to California Polytechnic State University in 2016.
Currently searching for a mechanical engineering internship with a desire to focus in product design and development.
Product Design and Development
Project levo | elevate your hammocking experience
The goal of our four person interdisciplinary team was to identify and take a need of a customer base from idea to working prototype in 10 weeks. Our team decided to focus on the camping arena and identified a need specifically within hammocking accessories. We developed a product concept for a device that enhanced the sport hammock set-up and break down experience by providing an easier, safer and more effective way to get into and out of a hammock. Worked with my team conducting market studies, ethnographic research, surveys, conceptual design illustrations, various iterations, material selection, manufacturing methods selection, CAD models and working prototypes.
A large role of mine was in the concept development phase, beginning with initial concept drawings, design iterating, concept testing, CAD models, and physical prototype creation and testing via 3-D printing.
internships | student engineering consult and/or designer
Currently searching for a Summer 2018 Mechanical Engineering Internship (will consider Co-Ops) in the state of California (prefer San Francisco Bay Area) with a desire to work in product design and development.
Also looking for student projects to work on either as an engineering perspective or to assist with analysis, modeling, and/or concept design.
