As for my work methods, I strive for continuous improvement, structure and overall process
within my arena.

Visionary Independent Inventor

As an independent inventor, typically work for myself however, I’m willing to work in conjunction with other companies to increase their product throughput as well as minimize the manufacturing cost. As a child I possessed a mechanical aptitude, artistic ability at a very young age and now coupled with 40 plus years of history hands-on/field experience in business development, manufacturing, and marketing.

Over the years I’ve come up with countless ideas for new inventions some of these ideas/products hit the market by others. That said, I’ve reached a point in my life where I would like to share my ability to others i.e. companies where I can explain/show them other ways to improve their existing product or “new idea” all of which would be profitable.
