Engineering Designer & Draftsman
UpWork - Dardanelle, AR
October 2020 to Present

I do freelance design work for people all around the world. I have worked for clients as far away as Australia and local as the surrounding United States. I have helped clients design many things, mostly molded plastic parts. I will generally follow their lead to what they are trying to achieve and engineer the product as close to their design as possible with the limitations of the trade. From draft angles to screw sizes and boss requirements, the design goes through alterations for the final achievement. I like this kind of work and it is satisfying but staying on top of the job seeking process can be a bit tedious. For that reason alone, I am looking to work professionally for the correct amount of pay. The days of under payment of draftsman who all typically do engineering design work, is over. I will stay in this role
on UpWork and as an employer, you can test me without my knowledge so please do so. I am worth the investment and thank you for your interest in me at this time.
