Erin McDermott
Director of Optical Engineering
Greater New York City Area | Publishing

My background in optical engineering and R&D in process and product development comes in handy in a lot of ways.

For 1: when helping corporations out that need root cause analysis or redesign in their optical/sensor/lighting systems. Need optics expertise or optical simulations but don't have enough resources in-house? My company,, has you covered.

For 2: when bringing amazing rapid PCB printers to engineers who desperately need time back they lost to SNAFU's in development cycles. Print traces and assemble your prototype board on your desktop in a matter of hours. No need to wait on a slow boat from China to test designs! Email me for more info or a quote at:

For 3: when helping out in any other technical marketing, business development, sales activities where your company needs a boost. I have even longer experience in bringing *non-technical businesses* a leg up. Ecommerce site building, ad and product testing, branding, partnership building, coaching, market analysis, content creation, etc.! For a free consultation, get in touch at:

I also wrote a book. So that was fun. It's an allegorical sci-fi called "Scourge of Sheol: a Novella" and is available through the following distributors:
