Tim was raised in New Jersey and graduated from the Pennsylvania College of Technology in 2013 with a degree in Manufacturing Engineering. Early in his career, Tim spent time working for an aerospace manufacturer and prototype machine shop, where he developed a strong skillset for hands on prototype and fixture development as well as design for manufacture. In late 2013 he took on a Test Engineering role at MakerBot Industries in Brooklyn, NY, where he focused on extruder development and created many of the internal performance tests that were used to benchmark and measure improvement.
In 2015, the warm weather, great outdoors, and major medical device presence brought him to Southern California where he spent his first couple of years designing surgical devices with a focus on single use laparoscopic instrumentation. Working closely with doctors that were challenging the status quo in surgical technique and tooling, it was here that Tim developed a strong understanding of FDA/MDR regulation and what it takes to get a medical device to market.
In 2018 Tim joined Ossur, where he designed and developed orthopedic devices with a focus on knee bracing. He helped bring multiple devices to market and strengthened Ossur’s biomechanical testing capabilities. During his time at Ossur he was exposed to a multitude of materials, processes, and manufacturing techniques which further strengthened his DFM understanding, device development, and rapid prototyping capabilities.
Tim joined the Omnica team in February of 2023 bringing with him years of experience in mechanical design and manufacture of aerospace components, consumer electronics, and medical devices. His hands on approach to prototyping and product development fit in perfectly with the ethos that Omnica has carefully crafted over the past 30+ years.
Outside of Omnica, Tim can be found riding mountain bikes, motocross, or camping throughout the western United States with his wife and dog. If not riding something with two wheels or camping, he can probably be found in the garage tinkering with his next project.
