New product design and development with electrical focus.
Aftermarket automotive sensor and ignition coil development with focus on manufacturing.
Complex problem solving. Something about the struggle just clicks with me. The best is when you solve a problem after days of fighting it with one swift moment of insight. It doesn’t happen often but is so satisfying when it does.
