Cut my ME design teeth at Montgomery Pfeifer with clients like Logitech, SGI, and Sun Microsystems. Then was tired of working on landfill so started blacksmithing. Then was tired of being poor, so went back to engineering. This time staying an independent contractor for Lunar Design, Alloy PD, and Hiemstra Product Development, with a focus on medical devices. Finally succumbed to adulthood and joined Alloy full time.
