Background and experience
30+ years of product R&D experience, and 40+ patents. Areas of experience include part design for high volume applications, tooling and fixture design, optics design, micro fluidics, and virtual prototyping. My current passion is multi-physics FEA using COMSOL. I have combined stress analysis, heat transfer, and fluid flow in one analysis. This has provided insights that analyzing one physics at a time would not reveal.
Services offered
Services include product design, COMSOL FEA analysis, and tolerance analysis.
Years of experience: Over 25 Years
Skills
  • part design for high volume applications
  • tooling and fixture design
  • optics design
  • micro fluidics

Recommendation

Jim is an excellent engineer, equally adept at analytical and experimental sides. He is very capable, works quickly and hard, seeks to understand the system thru modeling and testing, and gets the job done. He's has a broad knowledge base to start but also is a quck learner in new areas. I worked with him on several projects and he's very good in fluid, design, CAD, FEA, optics, laser welding, sealing. Would be an asset to any design team.

I have known and worked with Jim over the past 20 years in several different capacities. Jim has a wide range of technical skills from software and computer system management to plastic part design to opto-mechanical design. A common thread thru all of Jim's work is a desire to understand the fundamental science needed to solve a problem. He has the background, the skills, and work ethic to understand the science needed. He is always very thorough in solving problems and finishes what he starts. His work ethic is excellent and he has a very high level of integrity.

Jim is true craftsman and practitioner of fundamental engineering to create excellent designs or solve real world manufacturing problems.

Jim is definitely the kind of engineer you want to have on your team. I highly recommend him and look forward to any discussion of his capabilities.
