I am a designer, model and prototype maker living on the West Side. I like to make and repair antique or unique mechanical and sculptural things. I use SolidWorks CAD and have a few utility patents. I'm currently working for a start-up in Burlingame.
Every so often I need to use a tool such as a mill, lathe or 3-D printer that neither I nor my neighbors own or have room to store and that cannot easily be rented.
I've studied art, product design and film making. I've worked for product design and model making firms, including one with a SLA machine. I worked for a lab chip company for five years and, after a few years as a residential handyman, I now work for a company that makes power line monitors. We hire people with 3-D printers to make prototypes.
