When rapidly evolving
technology and customer demands required new thinking, innovative responses
and significantly better outcomes, consistently served as the goto
resource for the tough jobs and premier assignments. Led successful
teams in devising creative solutions to manufacturing, R&D and production
challenges in critical performance, zerotoleranceforerror environments.
Driving process development
to consistent technical success
Finding and removing
the limiting factors hindering growth
problem solving relationships
Engineer in four states, with certification from The National Council
of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying NCEES, making additional
PE licensing anywhere a quick process.
Strengthened QA validation
and verification. Pressure to complete System Design Description
SDD documents managed separately by seven Engineered Resources engineers
resulted in uncoordinated, duplicated work. Developed spreadsheet to
verify and validate all SDDs as a unified process instead of
separate requirements in overarching Facility Design Description FDD.
production problem. Task of loading and unloading Merrick client’s
tunnel furnace was complicated by radioactive dust fouling conveyor
bearings. Introduced innovative solution of using chains with low friction
plates linked to an automated mechanism to move trays in and out of
the furnace. Saved $K.
Introduced low cost
solution to inefficiency problem. Only lbs. of hazardous material
was hand loaded into drums designed to hold lbs. Modified lowcost,
commercially available compactor for use in a sealed environment at
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Reduced need from to
drums per year.
Improved cost efficiency
by combining intersecting projects. Integrated $.M replacement
of aging DuPont lab waste drain system with concurrent $M lab upgrade,
eliminating mutual interferences. Combined separate work orders for
different labs into a single project. Brought both projects in safely,
on time and within budget.
laborintensive manufacturing process. Conceived, designed, engineered,
procured, installed and started up $M fully automated material handling
system to move hundreds of containers weighing lbs. each in a /
DuPont production environment. Completed project safely, on time and

regional business development and perform organizational assessments
for clients of this management consulting and engineering / environmental
services company. Led team of system engineers in preparing documentation,
technical writing and editing for multibillion dollar Pit Disassembly
and Conversion Project for the DOE’s Savannah River Site. Prepared
system engineering documents.
