My background includes industrial automation and mechanical design. By degree, I'm an MBA, however after a few years on the road full-time as a management consultant, I fell into and in love with engineering.
My PLC / HMI experience includes projects from $10k up to about $40m, primarily within the realm of chemical processing and filtration. I am competent programming Rockwell, Siemens and a handful of smaller technologies.
I've also had the pleasure of designing most of the same systems I used to program. My competencies in this area include full design, 3D modeling and drafting of assembly and fabrication drawings in AutoCAD and / or Inventor. I've designed mobile systems that were built in shipping containers up to one that filled a two-story building.
Before engineering, I developed and implemented CI (Continuous Improvement) management systems in companies across America in various industries to include a military finance organization, a printing company, a mortgage bank, a candy factory (my personal favorite), a nuclear products manufacturer, a major producer of coiled aluminum and several more.
Apart from things professional, I'm into riding my motorcycles. If you haven't ridden 200mph (300kph) on a Hayabusa, you just haven't lived! I'm also busy teaching myself Hebrew and trying to learn how to play a few different instruments (but I have absolutely zero talent, so there's that).
Life was already short. COVID is doing it's best to make it even shorter. SO DO EVERYTHING!
