As much of this work is ongoing/in development I cannot post specific project details. As projects are completed, more context will be added.
I am currently a mechanical engineer at Facture where, as part of a varied team of engineers and designers, I assist our clients to design, develop, and prototype their devices. I have taken on roles as the primary mechanical engineer for several projects, and as project manager for mechanical, electrical, firmware and industrial design teams. Learn more about Facture here.
I assisted in the development and testing of the Headless Cruiser, an electrified penny board that allows for a “cruise control” of sorts. There is no remote, only a single button that turns the board on after the rider has given the board a push allowing the user to maintain there speed and have a “frictionless” ride. I assisted with the overall board design and power transmission system.
I have led the design effort and several electro-mechanical assemblies of varying complexity. Some featured a hand full of plastic parts with a single small PCB, and other featured dozens custom plastic parts with large battery packs and multiple high power PCBs. The exploded conical/cylindrical item below, for which I was the lead engineer, contained three PCBs with a mild level of ingress protection while still being serviceable so a technician could replace the battery pack with minimal tear down.
