I am a senior optical engineer offering
consulting services, specializing in
manufacturing, testing, quality, and applications, providing you immediate benefits from my
in the precision and laser optics field. I have experience and
training in a broad range of practical optics, and additional skills
in technical writing and training.
I've worked both hands-on and in a process engineering capacity
with optics ranging from 1.5 mm to 2.56 m in diameter; with thickness down
to 90 microns; in materials of all types including a range of glass,
metals, gain crystals, nonlinear and birefringent crystals; whose
hardness ranges from NaCl to Al2O3; in
configurations including flat, radius, prism, cylinder, aspheric,
multi-surface, lightweight, water-cooled, gas-cooled, and assemblies.
I've also developed tooling, fixturing, handling and test methods
for unique projects.
In addition, I served a decade in Quality Assurance administration
and management, which included creating complete systems to ISO-9001 and
My approach is grounded in theory; informed by practical physical
intuition, outside-the-box thinking and lessons learned; characterized
by full-circle communication skills; and dedicated to an ethical and
mutually respectful relationship.
