    Mechanical Design - CAD - Consulting - Technical Writing

    United States - Last active: 1 day ago - Tests: 2 - Portfolio: 3

    Hello! I am a Mechanical Design Engineer offering eight (8) years of product-development experience within manufacturing settings across multiple industries including aerospace, consumer products, medical, industrial, and energy. During my time in the aerospace industry I’ve honed my skills and proven my ability to create cost-effective, cutting-edge designs that meet project and product specifications. Also I’m an expert user of CAD programs and skilled producer of mechanical engineering documentation and drawings. I have 14 years of experience with 2D and 3D CAD design. I am proficient in structural analysis, mechanics, process engineering, and thermodynamics. My aptitude in CAD extends to systems and product design including components and assemblies, detail drawings, geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T), assembly drawings, engineering BOM’s, and stress analysis. From 2008-2013 I worked at Blue Origin in Kent WA as a design engineer for the propulsion and structural/mechanical groups. Through my engineering knowledge I developed design solutions for aerospace vehicles, systems, and components in the conceptual design phase, as well as, having sole responsibility for specific vehicle subsystems and hardware throughout the design process. Over the course of this position I worked on 3 different space vehicles. I was the responsible engineer for tests of integrated systems on multiple occasions. This entailed orchestrating tests and leading groups of people. In the last year I have worked as a freelance mechanical design engineer during which time my cross industry exposure has been significant particularly relating to injection molded plastic parts, consumer product design, 3D printing, and design automation (API). Please take your time to look through my profile and/or resume and let me know if I can be of assistance. Sincerely, David Mitchell

    Writer/Editor (comedy is my specialty), Actor/Voice Actor

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 20

    If you need something to be written, particularly something funny or entertaining, I can guarantee it in advance. I work fast and I accept nothing less than my best. I can produce comedy in any form- I write news articles, scripts for sitcoms, films, and short films, websites, etc. I'm also one of the top 5 greatest actors of all-time; most of the voices in that video next to this are mine. There's also a V.O. reel, as well as two editing ones, in my portfolio. I spent two years in Hollywood pursuing comedy writing. In the spring of 2012 I won Best Comedy at the 10th annual DIY Film Festival for a film I made 100% on my own (played every part, was the entire crew). In the past two years, I've published something like 55 videos that've gotten in excess of 20 million views (I've lost track). I do everything for these videos except for the animating. I write the scripts, find the actors, direct them, do my own voice acting (make my wife do voice work, as well), edit the audio, direct my animators (who live in 3rd world countries), edit their animations, and voila- an animation made for a few hundred bucks that 100k people will see in the first month. I wish I didn't have to be a one-man crew (minus the animating), but my standards are too high for amateurs, and professionals are just that- professionals working in the industry (not for freelancers with small, per-episode budgets like me). So, yeah- hire me and whatever it is you need, I'll exceed your expectations. Because if I don't exceed yours, then I haven't met my own. I'm internally motivated- my motivation comes from within. I don't work to get paid, I work to accomplish my goal, which is for my work to blow you away. It's like giving someone a Christmas gift and seeing their eyes light up when they open it- you're like, "yes! Nailed it!" If you get my work and are like, "yeah, this'll do," that's devastating- I want to see those eyes light up and know I nailed it. Oh, and I'm also good at over-explaining stuff. Meaning, I tend to explain more than is necessary to get the point across. In other words, so much explaining that it goes over the amount of explaining that was necessary.
