Senior Manufacturing Process Engineer

Hello!  I am a Manufacturing Process Engineer with a passion for Lean, Critical Thinking Project Management and Continuous Improvement!

I am knowledgeable, scientific, professional, analytical, pragmatic, yet goofy and nerdy.  I hope my courses make you chuckle at times, but deliver the goods that will help make you a better person.

I love Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, The Toyota Way, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Cosmos, @ Midnight, and many more!  

I have developed my lean skills through personal interest, 10 years at Daimler Trucks North America, 1 year At Blount International, and 2 years at Micropump Inc.

I received my Mechanical Engineering degree at Washington State University
