With twenty plus years of working experience combine in many fields, both in Profit Making and Research & Development Industries. I think I am an multi-task person whom can work and willing to take on an challenge task. Some of my work experience include:

JPL: From 1991 to Present would include:
MSL: Ectromechanic work / trouble-shoot circuit board, implement Engineer Changing Instruction (ECI),design and build mechanical test fixture as nessessary.

Sub Surface Explore (SSX):designed and built holding fixture, wired sensors, test, and wrote report.

Lunar Rover Outpost: providing tech work for assembly

Solar Sail: tech work for assembly, designed Sail Holding Container, and tested in low gravity enviroment (Zero-G flights)

MUSES CN: Designed and bult test model using Autocad, assemble OMRRE and MUSES Rover test model, intergration and test of thermal, shock and vibration at both on and off-site.

Gallieo Mission (GLL): Worked various area of this mission including:

- Set up test cases to study the data recording subsystem.
- Studied and trouble shot the High Gain Attena problem.
- Fabrication,intergration, and test of of Power Distribution Simulator.
- Electronic I&T of Flight Hardware into testbed (Bldg.264-112)
- Re-org & Re-gen Testbeds master cable lay-out
- built numerous of mechanical test fixtures, covers, and electronic test fixtures.

Spaceborn Imaging Radar_C (SIR_C) & NASA Scatterometer (NSCAT) projects:

fabrication of thermal blankets.

Out side of JPL enviroment, had worked in several industries. Fields of experience included:

QA @ Telematic Intl (8/90 - 3/91)
Sr. Mechanical Tech @ Micropolis (4/90 - 12/90)
