I am currently working for Electrical Consultants, Inc. as a Design Engineer in their substation group. As a substation design team member, my primary focus includes generation step up for wind farms. My day to day responsibilities include equipment selection, design of one line and three line diagrams, design of electrical AC and DC control schematics, substation wiring drawings, performing QA/QC checks for substations and switchyards, points list development, and SCADA programming.
In the past, I was the team lead for the Custom Products department of Bently Nevada. This was a team of 16 engineers that designed software and hardware modifications to standard product as well as providing engineering solutions to non-standard customer issues. The team lead role gave me the opportunity to work with international and cross functional teams on a variety of issues and provided management experience for a multidisciplinary engineering team. My role there as an engineer provided me with experience in rotating machinery protection, condition monitoring techniques, design for the industrial life-cycle, and hazardous location classifications. Other past roles helped me gain experience working with contract manufacturers and external development partners.
Before my time with Baker Hughes, a GE company, I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Electrical Engineering at Montana State University Bozeman. In 2009, I helped start Stonefly Studio as a family endeavor with my father. Then in 2013, I helped incorporate the business. Stonefly Studio is now a thriving company with international sales.
Outside of work, you can find me enjoying the lifestyle that Montana has to offer. My hobbies include fly fishing, camping, hiking, and wood working. In addition, you may see me cruising around on my 1999 Harley Davidson Sportster 1250.
