Freelance Support

I’m a freelance engineer and consultant with over 20 years of experience. I’ve worked across many industries, including federal, state, and local governments, health care, small, medium, and large businesses, hospitality, and retail. I’ve helped businesses of all sizes solve their most challenging problems.

I’m a self-starter who works best independently but can also collaborate well on teams. When working with my team members, I take the initiative to lead the design process and offer clear direction. I’m always open to feedback and receptive to new ideas.
