Summary

Engineering professional with experience in aerospace structures and subsystems, product design and development, special machine design, military optical devices, military vehicles, automotive manufacturing, and control systems design.

I have lead a team of engineers while developing aircraft tooling. I also have been a project leader on an antenna design integration program and a technical lead over a ground shelter mechanical integration.

Although, most of my experience is in design, I have also done financial analyses and projections for a proposed training program. I have also been a co-coordinator in developing a multi-million dollar response to a military RFP. I have also helped to develop, and compile, a response to another potentially high dollar value RFI.

MBA

Pepperdine University

The Fully Employed MBA curriculum consists of 52 semester units of coursework, which embraces rigorous, experience-driven learning that students can apply immediately to real business problems. Designed specifically for working business professionals, most class assignments require ongoing application of newly acquired knowledge and skills to the students’ professional lives. The program imparts a solid foundation of current business and management theory and practice, including an understanding of the impacts of globalization, competition, technological innovation, and ethics on the workplace.

Core Program Objectives

  • To develop fundamental knowledge in areas such as finance, marketing, accounting, economics, quantitative analysis, law, human behavior, information systems, management and leadership, and strategy.
  • To develop the skills to analyze business situations in an integrated, multi-disciplinary way.
  • To improve written and oral communication skills so that students can persuasively and professionally articulate their thinking.
  • To understand team dynamics and gain self-awareness to enhance their effectiveness as managers and leaders of teams of people.
  • To incorporate values and ethical conduct into decision-making.

Master of Science

University of Southern California

The USC Master of Science in Product Development Engineering is an interdisciplinary degree program jointly offered by the Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering and the Daniel J. Epstein Industrial and Systems Engineering Departments. The Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering Department will manage this joint degree program.

Developing new products is the essence of human intelligence in general, and engineering professions in particular. The growth of our economy has been largely determined by the engineer's performance and effectiveness in new product developments. The ever-increasing demands for product functions, coupled with low cost, high quality, and short lead-time requirements, have made product development a very complex and inter-disciplinary activity. The recent high-tech revolutions and stringent environmental concerns have further contributed to the complexity of modern product development.

There exists a great human resource need in the areas of new product developments.

There are three interrelated disciplines in product development: art, management, and engineering. The M.S. in Product Development Engineering program focuses on the engineering discipline, ranging from technology to systems. From the engineering viewpoint, product development can be seen as a process from invention, design, planning, production, to service phases.
