I am a Pattern maker by training and profession with 39 years in the foundry industry. I served 3 years of apprenticeship at Emmaus Foundry with Joe Hart. Joe had retired from the General Motors Tech Center as General Foreman. It was my good fortune that Joe grew tired of his retirement and missed the pattern shop.

I moved on to a job shop for 11 years, working for an old timer who never met a blueprint he could not read or a pattern that could not be built. I was challenged continuously with interesting work, impellers, volute pumps, valve bodies, as well as large, multi-core, floor molded work.

I started going to night school when computers first appeared, earning a degree in engineering technology. My first version of MasterCam was DOS and my skills as a 3D modeler, tool path programmer, and CNC setup man grew as the technology improved.With that knowledge, I was able to develop CNC process capabilities for machining patterns for John Medernach & Co.

Currently, I am a foundry engineer with Victaulic, the world leader in pipe coupling technology.
