Jeff is hied by our company at the last minute notice, for a 4 story, 20,000 square foot condominium new construction design project in San Francisco. He is extremely patient and talented, energetic and efficient. I am very impressed with his skill of using the modern technology with all the most updated software, computer aided design tools. That will greatly increase the accuracy and choices, especially in such a complex scale. Jeff is also familiar with all the application process of obtaining planing permit, building permit and conditional use permit. He read PPA and Ruben design committee comments very carefully, implemented line by line, yet in the mean time, watching out for the owner's interest like a lawyer. We have dealed with many big name professionals in San Francisco before we reach this point, Jeff has the skill all in one, and has the unbeatable speed since he is light and mobile, comparing to the cumbersome organization that answers your phone call with a secretary. After we gain the planning permit, we will most likely to continue to heir him for the building permit process, since he is an excellent communicator, to integrate the design with Machanical engineers, civil engineers, structural engineers. We believe he is the one for us.

Mariana is a real professional in everything she teaches. I wanted some audio engineering tips followed by my own vocal recordings and she helped me through the whole process! She also provided some great vocal and breathing exercises that are easy to incorporate into my day-to-day practice. We also worked in ear training as a support for my music building skills, I found it incredibly helpful! She is a wonderful package!! I'm looking forward to continuing my training with her :)

Eli was recommended to me by my contractor. We were remodeling our home and were in need of his services. He was very prompt and we can tell he was skilled at remodeling and home renovation. He brought up good points and ideas that we wouldn't have thought of ourselves. He was clear, concise, and was very patient with our questions and concerns. He worked well with our contractor and the City, which is an entire ordeal in itself. He even went out of his way to meet with the City for questions and concerns they had. We couldn't have asked for a better engineer and drafter on our team! Thank you, Eli!

If you have a challenge that is technical, yet perhaps a little offbeat, I am your go-to person! My work is in environments ranging from cleaning room sterility to engine grease and from analytical computation to try-and-test environments. I am skilled in mechanical engineering, several programming languages, logic, and statistics. I can help you create excellent technical presentations across a wide range of technical disciplines.

Have a cool idea for a new product or gadget you want to make? I can help you take it from start to finish, by: 1) refining and assessing feasibility of your concept, 2) designing, prototyping, testing, and iterating your design, and 3) sourcing manufacturers to make it and potentially mass produce it. I have extensive experience in medical device, automotive, and consumer electronic product design, and a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University. Resume is available upon request.

I'm pretty much the only entity in northern California who does the whole 3D vertical - 3D Engineering (3D Scanning | 3D Modeling | 3D Printing) and I have been doing this type of work since 2005...

About

I'm here for people that have a great new product idea, but don't know how to convert that idea into a physical model and beyond. The first step is to turn the product idea or concept into a computer model. The next step may be to build a prototype to be used for: 1) a proof of concept, 2) a proof of fit, form and function, or 3) to provide a working model of the product for investor meetings, demonstrations, etc. I'm very familiar with the latest rapid prototyping technologies (3D printers, selective laser sintering (SLS), etc.) in order to quickly create a physical part. I'm also here for people who have a backlog of new product design work that they just can't seem to get to with everything on their plate. I can off load a few of the projects and get them moving, again. I work with a customers' ideas, concepts, sketches, layouts, etc. Together, I help them create well-engineered, detailed designs of the individual parts, assemblies, etc. I have many years of experienced designed "tooled" parts for plastic injection molding, metal die casting, sheet metal forming, etc. I then can help get the parts prototyped. If needed, I can also help search for a company to manufacture the part. I've have over 15 years of mechanical design experience bringing new products to market. I'm an advanced user of SolidWorks CAD program. I have a BS in Mechanical Engineering from UC-Berkeley. And to help with the business and finance end of a project, I also have an MBA (Masters in Business Administration) from the Dominican University of California.
