Technical Consulting

I know I will never stop being an Engineer. It is a part of me and it is in my blood. When working on interesting, technically challenging projects, I love to take the opportunity and share my knowledge with others - to teach and mentor on top of delivering top notch designs and documentation. 

"I had the pleasure of working with Harald on several IMAX engineering projects, including the design of cameras and electronics platforms from scratch. Harald is an extremely conscientious electrical architect who always strives to offer the best alternative for the product within the project's constraints. Capable to tackle challenges from a big picture to details, I have always been impressed with his structured thinking. Furthermore Harald is always connected with his projects stakeholders, which allows him to properly factor in strategic needs with engineering development to make the right calls and prioritization. Harald will be a fine contributor to any organization seeking a talented engineering architect with expertise in broader management skills such as project, supplier, vendor and resource management."
