R&D Machinist, Made Cascade LLC



Program and machine parts on modern CNC machining equipment, including lathes, mills and routers. Iterate and develop parts as projects progress, and participate in collaborative efforts to improve the design of parts and assemblies, as well as the method for manufacturing them.
