I see myself as a student for life. I do not remember a time when I did not take charge of my own education. I convinced my father to enroll me in the local community college for programming courses when I was 12 years old. I decided to become an electrical engineer at 14 and finally succeeded with my first job working for James Cameron designing electrical hardware for 3D camera equipment. I have since worked in industrial manufacturing, automation, energy facilities inspection and robotics.
My career gives me ample time to tutor fellow students and allows me to review and continue to improve my own skills.
I would be happy to meet you and discuss your needs before you make a final decision to learn with me.
Worked with Auto CAD 2D drafting in my first job during college where I submitted drawings for HVAC installation projects.
I have generated many drawings of mechanical components and part representations using AutoCAD 2003 and 2009.
I use 2D and 3D drafts to develop documentation including bills of materials, assembly instructions and test procedures.
I have used AutoCAD, Solidworks and Alibe to create mechanical parts, visual presentations and manufacturing instructions.
I have studied and used C programming for multiple projects during and since my bachelor program. I have developed multiple programs for mathematics, database and embedded software solutions. I have successfully implemented programs for motion control, sensor interface and multi-state decision making programs.
I have studied programming since 1998 when my father placed me in a course at the local community college. Since my introduction, I have learned logic, structure, syntax, inheritance, object orientation and compartmentalization. My most recent projects have involved scripting to speed up tedious procedures and microcontrollers for prototyping.
I am an electrical engineer by trade. I have designed electronic hardware for 3D cameras and support hardware. I have specified, programmed and implemented multiple industrial systems for a manufacturing facility. I have designed and built many circuits for prototype and manufactured products.
I have studied martial arts for 10 years. I started in the Chinese tradition with Tai Chi, Wushu, Wing Chun and Taijutsu. When I left for university, I studied Karate and fighting techniques. After graduation, I continued with various local schools where I learned Jiu Jutsu, Systema, Muay Thai and Karate. I continue to practice Tai Chi daily.
I use Microsoft Outlook on a daily basis for my career. I use the various tools to monitor and update my schedule, communicate with colleagues and keep appraised of important events.
I received an A grade in Communications during college and completed the basic program for Toastmasters where I learned speech writing and delivery using multiple styles and methods. I continue to practice my skills daily with presentations and group meetings.
I played Volleyball for the team at my high school and continued in a team league during college. I know the rules and strategies for 2 on 2 and 6 on 6 games. I know all of the fundamentals and basics for each position.
