May 2014 - May 2018 (4 years)
I was principle designer at this Toledo, OH humanitarian aid startup, helping bring to market a novel approach to the problem of delivering food aid to distressed populations often on the move in sub Saharan Africa. Worked with Engineers in designing delivery systems, aircraft interfaces, aircraft deployment systems, payload protection systems, parachute deployment mechanisms, communication devices and bio-hazard survival kits. These systems were designed under very tight deadlines and are currently employed in Africa under the aegis of the World Food Program and other clients. This position also required that I produce numerous technical Illustrations, marketing graphics and other documents, including five trade show exhibits, 3 brochures, an in-house experience room with product line spec posters, vendor management of video production, writing of narration for video writing, production and Illustration of technical manuals for product lines. This position culminated in my managing our production facility in Entebbe Uganda in Fall / Winter 2017. While there I managed 30 local men and women in daily production and delivery to airport of hundreds of aid boxes with parachutes, continuous design and testing of improvements to our system, and representing our company in dealings with The World Food Program, the Russian air crews and the officials at Entebbe airport. *
