CollapseJob Skills





I have expertise in subsea vehicles ( Virginia Class submarine, ASDS mini sub and Dolphin class submarines.) My Surface watercraft experience include the marines expeditionary fighting vehicle where I designed the complex bow planes which fold and unfold as needed for movement on water or land. I have expertise with fixed wing commercial aircraft doing structural analysis Boeing 777-7, 777-8 and 777-9 and Bombardier's Global 7000 aircraft. I have experience with military aircraft as well with the JSF 35. I have experience with commercial helicopters at Siskorsky ( CK53) military and Bell 's Relentless helicopter. In spacecraft I have unmatched experience working at SpaceX, NASA, Lockheed Martin, Sierra Nevada and the Spaceship company. Most if not all of the vehicles have set numerous worlds records in their respective category.
