Senior Industrial Designer
Jul 2010 - Present (10 years 11 months)
Small team, big machines.
I work as an internal consultant to ensure our Cat products meet the brand promise.
Sketching, creo surface modeling, keyshot rendering, functional and 'looks-like' prototyping, as well as 3D printing/CNC machining are some of my responsibilities. In January 2017, I was asked develop a wearable safety device for an internal innovation team. It was my privilege to select development hardware, program it, and design the housing. The team took the 4 working prototypes I built to ConEXPO in March of 2017.
May 2005 - Jun 2010 (5 years 1 month)
I was responsible for collaborating with Industrial Design, structures, HVAC, Controls teams, and suppliers to develop production-ready plastic and composite covers and ducts for Cat machine cabs, including finished A- and B-side Creo models for a variety of processes including Injection, compression and rotomolding, as well as vacuum- and pressure-forming.
