Objective: AutoCad Technician / Hvac Engineering
    Apply my Degree and 12 yrs hands-on design prototyping & project
organizational experience of concept through production
of mechanical & electrical devices.  An innate mechanical ability
Almosot driven understand, design, build.
I have been taking apart and rebuilding, of every mechanical and
electromechanical device I found and adapt them to new uses.
since I was 8 yrs at my dad feet (Also an hands on Engineer at
Chrysler and Burroughs Areospace) until todays multiple projects.
                  Summary of Requirements met:
· Inventor patent # 5,588,257 which was put into production enabling a
new product reintroduction with Taiwan production.
· Degree in Engineering BSMET from LIT in Southfield MI.
· 5 years of experience in powertrain engineering, 2 in heat flow, heat
tranfer, Engineer and Technician experience.
· A strong desire to expand my interest in and understanding of fluid
dynamics, thermodynamics that I aced in at LIT.
· Proven experence in 3-D drawings, parts and complete product
Assemblies, used various CAD systems at school and work.
· History handling many varied simultaneous work assignnments to
meet deadlines on multiple projects.
· An enthusiasm for modifying high performance vehicles, and my 89
Camaro RS with multiport Injection I bought new..
· Excellent computer skills including hardware,Word, Excel and
Website publishing with front page.
· History of working long hours as necessary, travel, work
weekends/holidays.
· 12 years Demonstrated experience proficiency in setting up and
carrying out mechanical tests, see work history.
Some Highlights of Successes
*Inventor patent # 5,588,257 which was put into production enabling a
new product reintroduction with Taiwan production.
          *Investigated longterm gearcase oil/grease seperation and
leakage problem and with a NASA vender developed a new grease and
a new
               manufacturing process to use it. Saved 5000 dollar lawsuites,
improved gear life and did so at no extra cost.
*Solved & implemented resonance transformer induced noise
reduction program. Vibration and EMI cut 60%
*Worked overnight, three nights a row to complete assembly prototype
computer for functional and customer test review by corporate.
*UL test certified to do in house UL test to verify compliance with UL
requirements.
*Correctly redefined drawing and QC specifications, vendor process
requirements, and built identical gauges for both our QC
  and the vendor for plastic timing gear.
     Employment History:
Project Devoloper   (4/1996 - present)
RPS Enterprises-Started and ran my buisness, and deveolped skills   
4/1996 - present
*Formulated spur Gear design and manufacturing program that
calculates 35 interrelated solutions using 3 input variables.
Accelerated the design
    machining & inspection of manufactured gears and gear sets.
* Consulted and built prototype prosthetic limbs with silicone rubber
skin and unique actuators.
* Conceived, developed, made drawings and constructed many
mechanical projects. I bought & rebuilt 7 machine tools to .001
accuracy.
* Consulted Electro-mechanical, & Chemical design development &
fabrication of Spectroscopic automated environmental water analyzer
