Stinson L-5 Sentinel, Sensenich wooden propellor
Currently I work as a Consultant for CAD and PLM software with StraCon. While the Dassault suite with CATIA and MatrixOne are most prevalent, we routinely work with Pro/E, SmarTeam, ENOVIA LCA, Siemens NX (formerly Unigraphics), TeamCenter and many others, often providing integration services. I have been involved with server infrastructure and CAA programming at Gulfstream, Sikorsky, Cessna Aircraft and other large manufacturers, customizing and configuring their PLM systems to match engineering and business requirements.

While I usually lean towards the aviation industry, for the Summer of 2010 I was extremely fortunate to work with a manufacturing company in Sweden. Seco Tools employs an amazing team of professionals, and made us feel very much at home in their country. Thanks to everyone involved!

When I'm not at my day job, my primary hobbies are aviation, photography, and playing guitar. I'm also known for kiteboarding, bicycling, hiking, fishing, sailing, cooking, and motorcycles, among many other pastimes. You name it and I've probably tried it, though I have yet to jump out of a perfectly good airplane or trust my life to a bungee cord; not that I wouldn't, they just doesn't interest me yet.
