My favorite hobby in grade school was detailed pencil drawing. Which led me to drafting and design, where I was rewarded with an apprenticeship at an advertising agency by the age of seventeen. From there, I grew a hobby into becoming pleasantly obsessed with 3D manufacturing and began my career in engineering as a CAD designer for the automotive and aerospace industry.
I then gravitated towards a decade in Metrology, gaining experience in engineering, customer success, business development, sales, marketing, and wondrously exploring manufacturing solutions for a plethora of exciting applications requiring reverse engineering and inspection. That is where I was first introduced to 3DP and Additive Manufacturing (AM).
From 2015 to 2020, I focused on consultative sales, marketing strategy, customer experience, exploring Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF), Direct Metal Laser Solidification (DMLS), and Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) whilst gratefully being part of establishing a regional brand, managing channel partners, developing an inside sales team, and hosting the North American Technical Center for EOS.
2020 was the year I launched my own video interview series and podcast named All Digital AM.
In 2021, it was an honor to work with the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), leading Additive Manufacturing content strategy and customer engagement initiatives for a successful RAPID + TCT.
From 2021 to 2023 I led content for the launch of AdditiveManufacturing.com by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). Producing editorial content, hosting an audio podcast, and a livestream news video series. *Directly responsible for AM brand growth of >5000 LinkedIn followers in the first year.*
