Principal R&D Engineer
Why I'm a JPAL
I enjoy the opportunity to interface with up and coming companies to leverage the experiences and knowledge both parties bring to the relationship.
I am currently a Principal R&D Engineer in the DePuySynthes TECA (Trauma, Extremities, Craniomaxillofacial, and Animal) New Technologies / Front End R&D group. I have experience working on R&D projects across the orthopedic device space, including trauma, sports medicine, spine, and joint reconstruction. I have been privileged to work on a variety of new technology projects, with both internal and external partners, that span new materials, new manufacturing methods, personalized devices, software design, pre-clinical in vitro and in vivo testing from early concept to market introduction.

I've been called a coffee snob... I'd rather drink a cup of only hot water, than drink a "bad" cup of coffee.
