Product Designer
Problem Solving
Solving problems is - the inventive process
Passion compels me to strive forward
with great enthusiasm
Passion brings focus in a natural way.
Find your passion and live that.
Thank You!
My work is
my obsession

I fly
for fun

MITx, computer science, embedded systems, Aerodynamics
"this does not work quite right"
ruminating over the problem often
results in a bright idea
realize a customer need
Go to the field

I am 3D print capable, call me if you need a part 781-635-0728

Proof of principle and production prototypes

Light machining, lathe, bridgeport, grinder, drill

plastic solvents knowledge

have used cast urathanes, silicone molds

Electronic circuits, quick turn boards hand populated, wire and cable harnesses

I find it best to leave precision machining to the experts or use rapid prototyping, and modify prototypes parts as needed.

Work and school History Narrative
I've been employed doing something since the age of 15

The formative years
Dishwasher, High school was South eastern Regional technical, I worked for a year in Autobody, I served my country for 3 years as a track vehicle mechanic (Army),
Attended Sylvainia tech institute for a certificate in computer repair,
I was fortunate to work for a few years at a PC assembly shop in Foxboro called Elkim, The owner, Bill Jobski, put me thru each department, from shipping receiving, to quality, assembly, cabling, wave solder, and then spent time as his tech, assembling and trouble shooting electronic prototypes. Bill was a good mentor, 'Jim I have ladies on the line that are faster than you!' uhm, so time is important.
I stepped up my game.

Product design
Seven years at Level 1 Technologies designing blood warmers and blood salvage devices, Now for the past 16 years at Harvest Technologies. Presently at for the past 3 years with Harvest Terumo. Harvest Technologies was a small start up for several years. We were the first to make available a point of care autologous biologics processing device. It was really the beginning of the practical point of care autologous biologics industry (with great growth potential and with many competitors coming into the fray.

I love inventing, designing, bringing products to life.

I work with electronics, analog and digital, some software. Mechanical, metals and plastics. Even optics which I found fascinating. Working with the docs both in the lab and the field with patients. All with compliance to the regulatory guidelines.

I often find myself on the weekends (when I'm not flying) customizing bikes, cars, and maintaining the flying machine...
SmartSuction rocks it!
to this day,
the best performing fluid warmer!
(in the world)
Wes Verkaart, concept and disposable
Jim Ellsworth, hardware
This platform catapulted the biologics market
name a pharmaceutical that does not have side effects. (if you can let me know, thanks)
For healing let's go back to evolution.
Autologous platelet and stem
cell concentrates, no side
Bone Grafting, you really need the whole gamish, a matrix, some growth factors, and stem cells. For practical use in the clinical setting you need the whole package - hydration, activation, delivery
non contact RF Hypothermia study with Dr. Robert Valari, Navy blood research center, Boston, MA
small animal Hypothermia study, Dr. Bob Connolly, Tufts medical center, Boston, MA
10 patient intraoperative blood salvage study with Dr. Aryeh Shander, Englewood, NJ
Critical defect Cartilage repair study with Dr. Lisa Fortier, Cornell Univ. NY, Large animal
Critical Limb defect Study, bone grafting, bone marrow cell concentrate with Dr. Rory Todhunter, Cornell Univ. NY, Small animal
Adipose tissue collagensase digestion for cell analysis, Biocontainment, with Dr. Bob Mandle, Bioscience Research Associates, Cambridge, MA
Comparative blood processing study, Bone marrow concentration study, sterility study with Dr. Sherwin Kevy, Center for Blood research, Boston, MA, Heamotology
I find myself so fascinated by
how the body works
When passion and skill work together the end result is often a master piece

Work and school History Narrative 2
Office machines repair shop manager and a boat repair company - I gained a customer service perspective.

Started upper level education to eventually gain my bacholors degree in Electronic Systems Design from Wentworth. During which time I worked in the telecom industry as a test technician, quickly moved into test engineering for a few years before going to the medical device industry.

Work and school History Narrative 3
Work and school History Narrative 4
I keep current taking online course such as MITx computer science and embedded design classes (aerodynamic and earth sciences as well)
Recently trained on;
study subject protection,
blood borne pathogens,
CFR part 820 quality systems and in particular - design controls.

Presently I am at Strohl Med working on a method of confirming stroke that utilizes somatosensory evoked potential testing comparing the differential response of the left and right hemispheres.
