Hi, and thanks for stopping by my website. I'm a senior printed circuit designer with over 25 years of experience and a passion for doing quality Printed Circuit Board design. That's why when I decided to "strike out on my own", nearly a decade ago, I chose to focus on doing PCB design on-site. I just feel that there's no better way to do a high quality design than when you have the ability to directly interact with all of the principles, in real time. 


It's really a pretty simple business model, "do the work on-site and get it done right, the first time". And, since I do all the work myself, I never have to worry about quality control.


I am available for assignments in the greater Austin (TX) area, as well as throughout the continental US and Canada. I come equipped with my own hardware and access to the OrCAD schematic capture and Cadence/Allegro design packages.


Because of my rather unique mobility (see my home/office, below), I am open to considering all projects and potential opportunities, regardless of size or location (some restrictions apply, of course).



I am currently reviewing projects and entertaining assignments for the second half of 2014. I'm willing consider all opportunities, contract or direct, on-site or remote. So, have a look over my resume' (below) and let me know if I can be of assistance with your upcoming Printed Circuit Design requirements,

whatever and wherever they might be.


Thanks, once again, for stoppin' by.
