Why hire me?

      “Working with Scott was great. He is responsive, thorough, and went above and beyond what was required to ensure I received exactly what I needed. He saved me time and money on my project. I will hire him again.”

I graduated from Penn State University with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering (BSME) and a master’s degree in mechanical engineering (MSME).

While working as a mechanical engineer at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory, I wrote and revised operating procedures for the U.S. Navy’s nuclear-powered submarines and aircraft carriers. These procedures had to be accurate, clear, and concise, since the reactor operators are required to follow them verbatim, so I quickly learned the importance of both words and facts.

As a contributing author of “Issues for Low-Emission, Fuel-Flexible Power Systems”, a paper published in Progress in Energy and Combustion Science, I used my internet research skills to perform a literature review of variability in pipeline natural gas composition. I have also written numerous operating procedures, safety reviews, and environmental compliance (NEPA) packages for energy-related research projects at the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Energy Technology Laboratory.

While designing many mechanical components for use in a variety of research projects, I earned a patent award for a thermocouple clamp design, and a U.S. patent (No. 5,791,889) for my contribution in developing a novel method to stabilize combustion in a gas turbine.

Quite often co-workers asked me to do internet research for them because I had a reputation in our engineering department of being able to quickly and efficiently find information online when nobody else could.

At one of our weekly engineering department meetings, another engineer mentioned he had searched online most of the previous work day and just couldn’t find the replacement part needed to get a 30+ year old air compressor running again – and it was needed ASAP. It was holding up an important test run in one of the on-site research projects that was already behind schedule. After the meeting, I went directly to my computer and within 10 minutes found a supplier that had the part in stock that we needed. I immediately gave the information to my co-worker who proceeded to call the supplier, place an order for the part, and had it shipped overnight to us. The compressor was running again before the end of the next workday.
