Summary

I am an experienced analog design engineer specializing in Class D audio amplifiers, DC to DC forward converters and power supplies with power ranges from 10W to 4000W. I have extensive knowledge working with small signal analog audio processing; using VCA’s to create compressors, expanders, and other filters for the car audio market. My strength in engineering is matched with my competence in all aspects of product development from production process control to engineering management. My career has also included many years of experience working in an ISO certified system, and helped to implement a system in a Chinese factory.
