Project Experience
Maker Faire Projects, San Mateo, CA The Viper September 2011-May 2012 A 2-axis, 360, immersive flight simulator experience, the most elaborate of 5 Maker Faire projects. I designed & built: mounts & couplings for two 1 horsepower motors; custom jet-themed interior; custom instrument panel with integrated LEDs, buttons, and three touch-screens. Collaborated with two mechanical engineers to design 700 lb. motion platform. Helped manage our team of 15 people to complete project by deadline. Personal Projects, San Rafael, CA Aluminum Scooter September 2012 - May 2013 Modeled scooter in SolidWorks to refine dimensions and design folding mechanism. Machined aluminum parts on a mill and lathe. Taught myself TIG in order to weld several joints. Kitchen Knife August 2012 Shaped steel with a cutoff-wheel on an angle grinder. Sanded blade to an edge with a belt sander. Formed handle out of bubinga (an exotic African rosewood) and weighted it with lead-filled cavities. 1965 Mustang Restoration September 2009 - current Re-built the engine bay and completely replaced the interior.
