biography

⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨⌨ I am Tommy Mueller, an eclectic 3D design engineer using Solidworks software, equipped with an extensive background in manufacturing. Over the past six years I have been a successful freelancer, accomplishing client projects ranging from entrepreneurial concepts to advanced technologies and large-scale corporate designs and structures. I am passionate about design and presentation of ideas & products through team efforts, and I know how things are made in the real world. I have initiated and completed many global projects online, resourcing engineers from numerous countries and coordinating a variety of engineering and design concepts into unified solutions. Additionally, I have fluency in programming and digital graphic design using various Adobe products. I have years of experience creating custom websites, coding functions & enhancements for CMS platforms, and creating documentation and graphics for presentations crucial to client projects and processes. Some of my notable qualifications include: 20+ years in manufacturing (welding, machining, prototype/production fabrication, management) working with multiple mediums (metal, plastic, wood, low-voltage systems); 5+ years creating in Solidworks (3D parts, assemblies, drawings, renderings, animations) and preparing models for manufacturing (3D printing, molding, laser-cut); Winner and finalist for multiple design challenges through online-hosted competitions; Several published articles & interviews online and in print (most notable here: The Art of Product Design). My goal is to work as an integrated part of a unique team that produces creative concepts then actualizes them into innovative and useful products. I thrive in team environments, and am an active, social, creative person who places high value on professionalism, organization and forward thinking. I look forward to hearing from you! Professional Regards, Tommy Mueller
