Testimonials
Paul O'Brien
Director of Hardware Engineering at Microsoft
Top qualities: Personable, Expert, High Integrity
"I’ve used Kevin’s services for three years. Kevin works extremely well with the design teams and has good insight into the system tradeoffs required to get to a solution. His thermal models are outstanding with excellent correlation established to lab models and actual product. His predictions were independently verified down to the last detail. I highly recommend Kevin for thermal modeling and CFD analyses"

Chris Hoffmann
Manager, PACStar
Top qualities:        Great Results, Personable, Expert
“Kevin quickly understood the nature of our equipment cooling challenges associated with our military product development efforts.
As a result of Kevin’s direction, industry experience and keen knowledge of the physics of thermal engineering we avoided a long prototyping program, shortened our time to market and ended up developing a new light weight cooling technology that has given us a major competitive advantage in the market and generating 3 UP Patent applications.
I highly recommend Kevin for any technical endeavor he may be asked to do.”
