AGRICULTURAL


In college I was part of a team that designed an automated tomato planting machine. That is when I learned the importance of robotics in the future of agriculture. I always enjoy agricultural product design because of the challenging nature of the environment and the real world applications.

This gallery is of a few images of more recent agricultural projects.

NIF Inspection Robot
NIF Inspection Robot

Lawrence Livermore Labs Contracted with CMC to build this inspection robot. I designed all of the mechanical systems and fabricated them by hand. It could elevate the camera and sensor array from 18 inches to 5 ft off the ground for inspection within the Nuclear Inspection Facility.

I designed and fabricated this robot with a team of other electrical and computer engineers to compete in the IGVC competition sponsored by DARPA. GPS, Stereoscopic vision, sonar and other systems helped it navigate autonomously.

ROBOTICS


Early in my  career I got involved in robotics.  This allowed me to land a job at the California Mechatronics Center which specialized in building low cost but high functionality robots for various organizations and companies.

CONSTRUCTION


I am proud to be a 5th generation carpenter.  I have been building since I was young. Recently I have been designing houses, but the most enjoyment comes the few times a year when I get to pound nails with my family.

ARCHITECTURE & MAPPING

A large portion of my business involves creating plot plans and other technical documents for 

farms, homeowners and industry partners. 

I have designed a number of factories, from medical device foundries in shipping containers, to large scale extraction facilities. 

Born and raised in Southern Humboldt County, my experience in the local industry is innate. I am focused on helping people in my community become legal and compliant farmers, and to grow our rural economy.

TOP SECRET

 

Many of my clients have not released their products for purchase so I am unable disclose their identities yet.  This is part of the fun of being in product development!

 

I have a Non-Disclosure Statement that we can sign prior to discussing your ideas.
