PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

May 2014 – Present
RIPTIDE AUTONOMOUS SOLUTIONS, PEMBROKE, MA
LEAD MECHANICAL ENGINEER

As the sole Mechanical Engineer and CAD user, I am responsible for the mechanical design and 3D modeling of the entire Unmanned Underwater Vehicle. The base vehicle is approximately 3 feet long by 5 inches in circumference. The particular challenges associated with designing this vehicle include: modeling the lofted nose, fins, and tail for hydrodynamics; mounting and fitting a wide variety of electronic boards, servos, and wires into a compact and irregular shape; and ensuring the entire assembly remained watertight even though we had several items penetrating the hull such the connections to the control fins and wiring to the motor. Despite these challenges, we were able to design and fabricate a working prototype in 3 months.

Jan 2011 – July 2013
DIGITAL DIMENSIONS INC., SAN DIEGO, CA
CALIFORNIA SALES MANAGER

I took over a dysfunctional and underachieving sales team. Using inventive strategies, coaching, and motivation, the team met its quota for the first time in the year one month after my arrival.

ACCOUNT MANAGER, TUCSON, AZ
I was an office of one in Tucson, Arizona. While operating independently, I increased the revenue in Tucson by over 60% from 2010 to 2012. I bonded with many of my customers and still have friendships with them today.

July 2007 – Dec 2010
FLAGSTAFF FAMILY FOOD CENTRE, FLAGSTAFF, AZ
EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

I started as a volunteer, then a cook, and then was asked by the outgoing Executive Director to fill her position. I discovered that we had spent $60,000 more in 2007 than we had raised. I immediately implemented a fund raising strategy that included grant writing, volunteer and donor solicitation, and public awareness. During my 3 years as Executive Director I was able to double the revenue of the Food Center. From 2008 forward, we maintained a positive cash flow while giving yearly raises and introducing benefits such as health care, paid vacation, and sick leave. I also managed daily operations for a staff of 8-10 employees and 50+ volunteers. Staff turnover dropped from 100% in 2007 to 12% (one position) in 2010.

Dec 2005 – June 2007
RIPPING REVOLJUTION, SAN MARCOS, CA
COFOUNDER/VICE PRESIDENT OF OPERATIONS

I worked with a friend to get his startup company off the ground. The company copied CD and DVD media onto high-end home entertainment systems. Media was digitized by a robotic assembly. I was responsible for setting up and operating the robots as well as cataloging and storing all digitized media.
