Experience in the field
I have worked on a wide range of different medical and non-medical devices. I started my career with designing and developing several different types of medical and surgical lasers as well as optomechanical and electrooptical beam delivery devices that are both patient and non-patient contact with disposables. I have also worked with the following:
RF and passive surgical devices and catheters for many different surgical procedures
Medical device packaging equipment for sterile filling of IV bags as well as test equipment for this device
Electro optomechanical devices for minimally invasive office surgical procedures
Scientific equipment for improved reliability and recording of experiments
Automated and manual manufacturing machinery and fixtures for assembly of many different devices
Self-contianed power cubes working with generators and solar for off grid remote cell towers
Prototyped high-end suspension components for mountain bikes and other consumer products
What do you like about working at a company that designs medical products?
I like being able to work on medical devices because I feel as though we are making a positive impact in the world as well as designing something that will help save someone’s life or at a minimum improve their quality of life.
What do you like about working at Tensentric?
I like the community and team approach to developing products for our clients. I also like the approach here where lifestyle is valued as much as meeting all the client needs.
What unique set of skills do you bring to Tensentric?
I was lucky enough to grow up in a house where my father designed and built nuclear imaging test devices (phantoms) in our basement, so I have had access to all the machinery I could ever want and have been designing and building my own little projects as far back as I can remember. Because of this, I have extensive hand on experience working with all kinds of materials.
What hobbies or non-work activities are you most passionate about?
I love the outdoors. Outside of work you can find me somewhere outside either hiking, camping, snowboarding, or mountain biking. I am also passionate about building and working on cars and engines.
Where were you born/where did you grow up?
I grew up in Connecticut on a piece of property that used to be part of my grandfather’s farm.
When you were in elementary school, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I always wanted to design and build racecars and racecar engines.
