I have been actively involved in my family's business since it's inception in 1978. What started as my father's hobby in radio-controlled (R/C) airplanes, quickly evolved into a company providing electronic servos, brushless motor controllers, brushless D/C motors and battery chargers for R/C scale cars. As a member of the product development team, I design the printed circuit boards, source components and create the assembly drawings and procedures for our in-house manufacturing facility. Specialties: Design layout for printed circuit boards according to engineering specifications. Review and analyze engineering design schematics and supporting documents to plan layout of PCB components and printed circuitry. Confer with engineering staff to resolve design details and problems. Coordinate production, purchasing, warehousing, and financial forecasting activities to limit costs and improve accuracy and customer service. Direct the movement, storage, and processing of raw material, work-in-process and finished goods inventory. Manage sub-assemblies with global suppliers to reduce manufacturing costs and to ensure timely receipt at US factory for further assembly into finished product. Examine existing procedures for streamlining activities to meet manufacturing needs.
