I am a mechanical/electrical design engineer with over 20 years of experience. I have an associates in Computer Aided Design and a Bachelors of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Washington State University. I have 17+ years of experience designing and engineering various pieces of machinery in the mechanical engineering field and working on various electronics and electrical projects with some civil engineering thrown in. My experience is very broad due to the fact that until recently I have been working full time and freelancing on the side. Currently I am a full time freelancer and can devote all the time necessary to your project. I am fully versed and have over 10 years of experience with Solid works and Autodesk Inventor both of which I have full current copies of, and over 20 years of experience with AutoCAD. I also have experience writing LISP, and VBA programs for Solidworks and AutoCAD applications.

  • image of Mesika Solidwords Engineer $200.00 USD

    “It is unfortunate that he gave us the confidence that he is on top of the project and that it would be done in a few days. We wasted 3 weeks of our time on this guy playing phone tag and not responding to emails. In the end he just disappeared with no communication or finished project. Needless to say i am a very unsatisfied customer.”
