Electronics engineering consultant with experience in medical, commercial and military/aerospace. 

What can we do for you?

You know that due to fierce competition and the early retirement of your most experienced engineers, your new products/designs may not be receiving as much attention/review as you would like.  Furthermore, your budgets cannot justify more full time senior engineering staff.

The solution is to engage an experienced engineering consultant on an as needed basis.

I can provide you with professional engineering and management expertise in many disciplines.  As a member and a past Chair of  the IEEE Chicago/Rockford Consultant's Network (www.ewh.ieee.org/r4/chicago/cn/) and a founding member of the IEEE Houston Consultant's Network (www.ewh.ieee.org/r5/houston/cn/), I can direct you to experts in other needed fields.            

My main areas of expertise are:

  • Systems Engineering including conception, generation of winning proposals, design, design reviews, problem solving etc., "from cradle to grave."
  • Analog, RF, microwave and optic design requiring rugged environmental qualification with excellent knowledge of Electro-mechanical interdependencies, "from DC to light."
  • Project and vendor management and technical recruitment screening.
