Is Mecha Engineering a company or an individual?
I am an individual freelancer doing business as Mecha Engineering under my own LLC, currently incorporated in California.
What kind of an engineer are you?
I received my Masters in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California, Irvine. My focus is on hardware development.
Will you work on a W2 basis for my contracting agency?
Rarely does that situation benefit myself or the client in question due to the multiple layers of overhead. I do partner up with contract agents on a 1099 basis when it makes sense.
Where is most of your prior work?
A majority of my work has been for the defense industries in a classified setting.
What are your rates?
My rates vary depending on many factors, including the group, size, needs of project, and travel requirements. I also support small innovative projects on a cost deferred basis on occasion.
What does MECHA mean?
When I was an undergrad, my friends called me ‘Mecha’ because of my major but also because they knew I wanted to work on exoskeleton development. The common term in Japanese cartoons for these mechanized armors is ‘Mecha’.
