Hi! I'm Gerry, and I'm a Designer, Maker, and Engineer. My whole life, I have been curious about how things are made and how we use objects and technology to interact with our world and each other. Raised by an Artist and an Engineer, I grew up feeding my creativity by building things and taking things apart, turning ideas into real working objects and I just can’t get enough! I have a passion for learning and I’m always working on projects and hobbies in my free time. I graduated from Villanova University in 2012 with a degree in Electrical Engineering and have been working full time in the aerospace industry ever since. In 2013, I discovered the field of Industrial Design to be a perfect match for my interests and skills, a combination of creativity, inventing, hands on prototyping, and technical understanding. While intensely self-studying and refining the skills I would need to work towards a career in Industrial Design, I started GMAY3 Design, an Industrial Design consulting company that I actively run in my mornings, nights, and weekends. Since starting GMAY3 Design, I’ve gained a ton of valuable Industrial Design work experience designing for clients such as GCW-Zero, Hooke Audio, and Microsoft.

Work History

  • Electronics Engineer

    • Lockheed Martin - Space Systems Company
    • King of Prussia, PA
    • Jan 2014 - Present (3 years 5 months)

    I design and develop software tools and applications in MATLAB for graphical and visual data and electronics analysis.

  • Industrial Designer / Founder

    • GMAY3 Design
    • Philadelphia, PA
    • Mar 2013 - Present (4 years 3 months)

    I founded GMAY3 Design in 2013 as an Industrial Design brand and consulting company.

    As a Product Designer, I work closely with the Founders of several companies helping them evolve their ideas into realized products. I provide 2D concept sketching and full 3D renderings of a product, exploring form, function, material, and color with my clients. I utilize model making and 3D printing to create prototypes to evaluate and refine functionality of products for mass manufacture.

  • Systems Engineer

    • IS&S
    • Exton, PA
    • May 2012 - Jan 2014 (1 year 8 months)

    I designed panel layouts, internal electronics, and mechanical enclosures for simulation test equipment supporting cockpit avionics, displays, and physical interfaces for Boeing 737, LMCO P-3, Delta MD88/MD90, and Pilatus PC-12 aircraft. I also worked on design documentation and supported in house production and system testing for MCDU, Cockpit Display and Control Panels, and Air Data Systems.

  • College Intern

    • Lockheed Martin - Advanced Technology Labs
    • Cherry Hill, NJ
    • May 2011 - Aug 2011 (3 months)

    I worked on a DARPA contract for the research and development of a unique maple seed type drone prototype which could provide quick video surveillance to soldiers while in battle. I had several responsibilities such as soldering PCB components and 3D modelling the drone and its replaceable parts. I designed and built custom ruggedized packaging for delivery and live demonstration of the prototype product at the Marine Warfigher Lab. During the summer I also researched battery technology to reduce the drone's weight and analyzed RF communication interference problems between the drone and its base station.

  • College Intern

    • Wavecam Media
    • Villanova, PA
    • Nov 2008 - Feb 2010 (1 year 3 months)

    I assisted with electronics testing for an aerial rail mounted camera system for live TV sports field coverage. I worked on PCB component pattern drawing, schematic drafting, and PCB routing /layout. I also updated obsolete components on existing PCB designs and drafted CAD layouts for camera operator control panel CNC machining based on button, joystick, and power and data interface dimensions.
