My Extended Profile

I am a person who likes to tinker and experiment with stuff, designing new things and modifying existing ones. I live and work in the San Francisco Bay Area designing and building stuff for money during the day and I tinker in the garage at night.

Professionally I work as a mechanical and electrical designer of systems and industrial products. I am an expert user of Solidworks mechanical design software and I have almost 20 years experience working in various diverse industries. I hold more that one patent for original system designs and I speak fluent Spanish.

I am familiar with ANSI Y-14 drafting standards, high volume manufacturing, machined part design, sheet metal design, molded and cast parts. Professionally I have also designed motor control systems, positioning systems and I have built many many many prototypes for my employers. In addition to messing around with stuff in my garage I also like to play the guitar, write music and hike.

This Blog is a collection of some of the things that I am building in my spare time in my garage. I decided to document what I am doing in this way because it is easier than emailing pictures to everyone that I know every time I build something! For the most part I have kept track of, documented and photographed my projects as I built  them and I will add them a few at a time to the blog as I get organized. If you would like to contact me email me at
