    I’m Kevin. I design things. Over the last ten years I have taken over twenty commercial products from concept to manufacture while navigating startup challenges along the way. I am “practical” above all else. A team player and easy to communicate with, I am able to take rough concepts and deliver them as working products or prototypes with minimal cost and hassle. My specialty is electronic hardware design, though most projects involve physical or mechanical parts as well. This is my full time job, working from my dedicated workshop near Portland, Oregon. I have in-house capability for most aspects of bringing up new designs and fabricating one-off devices or prototypes. We have high resolution SLA 3D printing (UV resin), a large 4x8’ production CNC machine suitable for plastics and most aluminum, and plenty of bench/floor space for your project. I have relationships with various local machine shops and test labs, so extra support is convenient if needed. I work in Altium Designer for schematic and PCB board layout, and use Solidworks or Autodesk Fusion for physical component design and working with complex physical assemblies. I have designed many injection molded parts, stamped metal parts, etc. Many of my products involve radio so I’m familiar with the FCC test lab process for both module based radios and custom designs. I have designed Internet of Things IoT products, wireless mesh networking, and low cost proprietary point to point radios. I am intermediate level coding on small 8 to 32 bit microprocessors in C,C++. My code is extremely "human readable" and cleanly documented. I have solid experience with Mircochip PIC processors, Atmel, STM32, and MSP430. I have written several low level handlers for custom board hardware and protocols. If you’re looking for a competent person that is easy and reliable to work with, and who will handle your project as if it were their own, let’s chat and see what happens.

    OVERVIEW: I’m a practical hands-on engineer, by degree, and imaginative to a fault by natural inclination. I have broad and deep design and manufacturing experience with a variety of end products, including but not limited to medical devices, high-end audio electronics, and musical instruments. I also have a great deal of personal experience with building & construction, and with hydraulic systems. — — — — — — — — — — — — MY 1st PRIORITY: I could bore you to death with my expertise in creative ideation, complex 3D modeling, 3D printing, plastic injection molding, sheet metal, materials, mechanisms, stepper motors, fixtures, arduino systems, and fabrication with fabrics & foams. I could brag that my work has been exhibited at MoMA (really, see portfolio). But I'm much more interested in hearing what YOU are up to, and to see if I can help with YOUR project — because over time I've learned that successful collaboration is the best reward. — — — — — — — — — — — — SKILLS AND ORIENTATION: SKILLS (design-wise): Very good 3D CAD chops (Creo, Solidworks, Blender). Lots of complex and successful modeling, injection molding, and various other manufacturing examples to show & tell about, including arduino microcontroller system design. SKILLS (prototype-wise): My particular standout talent seems to be the ability to make, fix, find, and/or modify almost anything needed, really fast, with my own hands and minimal equipment. With my FDM and SLA printers, there isn't much I can't do. Probably faster and cheaper than is usually expected. If needed, I can sew fairly well too. — — — — — — — — — — — — WORK STYLE: Many people I've worked with have called me "MacGyver" because at some critical point in a project they came to understand the unusual value I usually bring to whatever the particular task. My default mode is usually to do most everything myself, but I've recently found it's even better to work with like-minded collaborators — which is why I'm looking for interesting projects to help with on Upwork. My guess is that if you've read this far, you are potentially a like-minded collaborator. Let's talk and find out! — — — — — — — — — — — —

    I use SolidWorks to design components for manufacture by plastic injection molding, machining, 3d printing, etc. My designs range from simple parts to complex electromechanical systems requiring computer control. I have experience developing and using integrated thermal, electrical, mechanical and optical test tools. I hold several patents, mostly for thermal management techniques. My documentation, including drawings, descriptions, and instruction manuals is clear and concise. My computer code is compact, efficient and internally documented. Much of my career has been in cutting edge or arcane technologies. I can describe many adventures (and a few misadventures) at the intersection of matter and energy. From using sunlight to burn a half-dollar size hole in an aluminum plate to a liquid metal cooling system that could instantly stop vigorous boiling in five gallons of water.

    I'm a Columbia-educated Mechanical Engineer with 7+ years experience in product design, CAD modeling, and 3D printing/rapid prototyping. I've designed and built a wide array of products including wearables, tools, manufacturing robots, and medical devices. My products are focused on creating a positive user experience using data-driven/consumer research-driven design and innovative manufacturing techniques. I am happy to work with you to develop a product in any stage of its existence, whether you want me to design something from scratch or simply need me to help you with one small aspect of a design project. I also have extensive experience in project/people management in the startup industry, so I can assure you that projects will be delivered in a timely, respectful, and professional manner. I am very proficient in SolidWorks and can also work in Autodesk Inventor & Fusion. I am comfortable working with a wide array of materials for physical prototypes, including plastics (3D printed or laser-cut), metals (aluminum & steel primarily), and soft goods (ie, textiles & synthetic fabrics). I am also capable with electronics & software and can easily integrate them with hardware products. For prototyping, I own 3 Prusa Mk3S 3D printers and a small laser-cutter and can use them to very quickly deliver professional-quality physical versions of your design. I have soldering irons and other electronics prototyping tools and can do this in-house. I also have limited access to metalworking tools and more industrial-grade machinery for projects that require more advanced manufacturing. In conclusion, I'm an avid problem solver, and I love to tackle problems in the product design/manufacturing space. Thanks for reading, and I hope to work with you soon!

    I am a mechanical engineer, and have extensive experience using Solidworks to complete a variety of design projects. I am competent with designing stand alone parts, parts in an assembly environment, and whole assemblies. I am also competent in producing Solidworks drawings for manufacturing and layout of parts/assemblies, using proper GD&T when necessary. When designing a part or assembly, I take into consideration the mechanical and usage requirements of the design, how the design will interact with other parts of a larger system, fitment tolerances, and methods of manufacturing. In my philosophy of design and engineering, there aren't necessarily outright solutions, but well orchestrated compromises instead. The interrelated costs and benefits of different design decisions must be weighed and considered within the given constraints to reach a desired outcome. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions or requests.
