Changing the Business of Electronics Production
In my role as Shaper’s Principal Electrical Engineer, I’ve worked with Altium and Macrofab to help alpha/beta test Altium’s new design-to-manufacturing flow powered by Macrofab.
Interview: Insights for Aspiring Engineers & Product Designers
In this longform interview that I recorded with Altium about a year ago, I share some of my thoughts on accessibility, holistic engineering, and developing products with a collaborative mindset.
Leveraging Engineering Expertise for Supply Chain Success (AltiumLive 2020 Keynote)
The 2020 AltiumLive annual PCB Design conference may have been virtual, thanks to COVID-19, but that didn’t stop me from participating and giving a keynote focused on supply chain management for engineers.
Holistic Product Design for Electrical Engineers – AltiumLive 2019 Keynote Talk
Last year, I spoke about empathetic engineering at Altium’s annual PCB design conference. This year, they invited me back to take that topic a step further. In my 2019 AltiumLive keynote, I discuss what holistic product design means for electrical engineers and PCB designers. Read on to watch the full keynote.
Empathetic Engineering: Watch my Keynote and a Shaper Spotlight from AltiumLive 2018
I recently had the privilege of delivering one of the keynote talks at AltiumLive 2018, an annual conference for circuit board designers. In my talk, I used Shaper (where I currently work) as a case study of how design thinking principles can be leveraged to help engineers design better products. Read on to watch the keynote and a video that highlights Shaper’s design philosophy.
