I can assist you with developing/designing/validating chemical processes, chemical equipment choice, solving current process problems, evaluating toll manufacturers, and imparting knowledge of chemical and engineering principles to your employees. My experience in specialty chemical pilot plants along with manufacturing has provided me hands-on problem solving opportunities and the knowledge gained from solving those opportunities. I have kept a close understanding of the chemistry's that I engineered for and I bring that blending of chemistry with engineering into all my work.
