Delta Design and Engineering Solutions 
or Delta DES and the logo have actually been something I have been working on in one way or another sense high school. I came up with the triangle after getting a notebook for school.
Delta Design and Engineering Solutions is my pencil sharpening box.
A place for me to refine my skills, showcase projects that I have worked on, provide to and interact with the Autodesk Inventor and CAD community.

TO BE Clear:
While my web site name Delta Design and Engineering Solutions does provide me with a vehicle for self employment as an independent consultant or contractor and while I have had a few opportunities to do so, to date I have not nor do I have any plans at present to be self employed. I have not nor do I plan too incorporate as an LLC or any other corporation entity. Quite simply, in order to do what I would want to do to make Delta DES a company I would have to win the lottery! However, I do like the idea of maintaining a professional presence on the web such that I could do so if I needed/wanted too.
This sites primary objectives as previously stated are to provide and interact with the cad community at large as an engineering resource library, to advertise my self to potential employers kind of a "resume on steroids", provide for my email address and personal library materials in the DES Library.

I have worked in the design and engineering field for 19 plus years on projects involving space and aerospace based 
applications, tooling, test fixtures, machine parts and assemblies, pneumatic s, hydraulics, electro-mechanical packaging, 
vehicle integration and automation systems using digital prototype modeling applications featuring top-down skeleton 
modeling techniques, tabled geometry and assembly systems, finite element, dynamics, drafting and detailing with GD&T. 

I also have experience involving manufacturing processes, manual lathe and end-mill fabrication experience of parts and 
assemblies in support of DOD and space based structural components as well as testing fixtures and tooling. 
I have worked in support of systems engineering, quality control and inspection, systems integration, testing and facilities 
construction and have also worked in support of computer systems networking, designed, development and management of 
an online database, and have experience in HTML, XML and visual basic. 
You can see some examples of my portfolio here
This web site and the content therein has been compiled and built entirely by me and powered by Google. 
It is the face of what I would do for a company if I were to incorporate and go into business for myself which for personal reasons 
I can not do. 
Given today's society however, most people in my position may decide to use face book twitter or other social web sites. 
In this business I have found that it is not wise, so you can consider this a glorified blog and/or my "resume on steroids".
