Quality Engineer, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Feb 2016 – Mar 2017
Provided technical direction regarding root cause analysis, issue resolution and established corrective actions by
employing Greenbelt problem-solving expertise to correct quality/warranty issues.
Supported product design intent and function while assisting with identification and solutions of manufacturing
constraints, by implementing industry practices (PER/IAA/ECN).
Identified risks/hazards associated with product designs, processes, and applications, by applying lessons learned, and
assisting in the generation of FMEA’s and associated Control Plans.
Delivered clear direction to skilled and non-skilled trades in the operation of product testing to generate necessary
quality test data.
Provided supervision necessary to perform, administer and direct rework/repair methods and processes in compliance
with engineering standards.
Developed programs to support World Class Manufacturing and applied the Kaizen method to problem-solving.
Field Engineer, CIMA+ Sept 2014 –April 2015
Acted as a liaison between Engineering, Operations, and Maintenance cross-functional teams, to resolve day-to-day
production inconsistencies, by preparing, reviewing and distributing work scopes, and design based documents.
Provided work scopes for Maintenance and Operations to conduct commissioning and Start-UP activities such as Vessel
Closures, Equipment Isolation, and Pre Start-Up Safety Reviews.
Diagnosed and resolved field construction issues through the application of industry codes and standards (ASME Sec 8
Dev 1 & 2, ASME B 16.5, ASME B31.1 & B31.3, API 510, 570, 579-1).
Mechanical Reliability EIT, Suncor Energy Inc. Feb 2014 – Sept 2014
Developed equipment strategies and maintenance plans for electrical and hydraulic shovels using Reliability Centered
Maintenance (RCM) Methodologies that were implemented by Maintenance teams.
Identified failures, devised inspection reports and failure task resolutions and negotiated mitigation plans with
operation/maintenance supervisors and planning coordinators.
Led continuous improvement team to resolve premature failures on shovel track-pads, by studying the effects of the
operating conditions on the metallurgy and wear rate within the roller path – Achieved $ 3M CAD component
replacement savings per annum.
Predictive Maintenance EIT, Suncor Energy Inc. Jan 2012 – Feb 2014
Identified equipment operating envelopes using data collection and analysis, utilized Preventative Maintenance
techniques such as live monitoring tools, oil analysis, wear rate analysis and fleet management systems. Resulting in
increasing business unit KPI’s and asset reliability.
Evaluated failure modes using Failure Analysis (FA), Root Cause Analysis (RCA) and Failure Mode & effects Analysis
(FMEA), to prevent future component failures, maintain asset availability and safety.
Spearheaded Air Emissions reduction strategy to reduce fuel consumption and lower emissions on Haul Truck
Compression Ignition engines (Tier-II and Tier-III ) – Achieved $ 3.8M CAD savings per annum.
Bachelor of Applied Science (Honours) University of Windsor Sep 2007 – Aug 2011
Major: Mechanical Engineering – Automotive
Masters of Mechanical Engineering (M.Eng) Candidate University of Windsor
expected date of completion: Sept 2017
Suncor 2014 Fall – Primary Upgrader Turn Around Sep 2014 – Dec 2015
Resolved bad actors during Suncor’s Primary Upgrader Turn-around project, by performing field walk-downs,
measurement collection, implementing Industry standards and collaborating with Area Supervisors and maintenance
Compiled Engineering Scope of work, which improved static equipment Reliability and overall Physical Availability.
Suncor Air Emission Reduction Strategy – Emission Reduction Feb 2013
Provided essential calculation on idle fuel consumption on Mining Haul Trucks (CAT 797A/B) and identified opportunity
to decrease NOx and CO emissions by tuning and swapping Tier-II and Tier-III Compression Ignition engines.
Achieved operating cost reduction of 3.8M CAN$ per annum and reduced emissions as per EPA requirements.
Suncor Shovel Gantry Failure Investigation May 2014
