This is my tagline


Since first using Solidworks in college in 1998, I have become very comfortable using the software and enjoy using it to solve and document design problems. The largest project I was involved with was on the development team for the worlds largest hybrid powered Hydraulic Mining Shovel, the Caterpillar 6120 B H FS. This machine is so large, it can be seen in the satellite images on Google Earth.
