Associate, Senior Mechanical Designer



I have more than 30 years of mechanical engineering experience. I attended Moscow State University of Civil Engineering before working in Moscow, Russia and joining Mazzetti in January 2009. A LEED® AP, I bring a keen understanding of solid modeling, solid works, and finite element analysis to my work.

I have performed mechanical, plumbing, and medical gas system design for healthcare, commercial, institutional, educational, retail, and high-tech projects, third-party reviews for various projects, and mechanical and plumbing plan check reviews for building departments. My areas of expertise include mechanical systems with the following applied equipment: centrifugal, absorption, and reciprocation chillers, multi-zone central air handling units, variable volume air handling systems for single and double duct applications, rooftop package gas/electric units, and water source heat pumps. I have led design teams on large projects requiring a high degree of accuracy and organization.

For my own part in living a sustainable lifestyle, I do my best to be responsible for my actions and helping those in need.

My recent projects include: consulting for Vanir Construction Management and Alameda County Public Works on mechanical, plumbing, medical gases, and fire protections work for Alameda County’s OSHPD 3-SAT building; HVAC design for Kaiser San Leandro Patient Towers; plumbing design for Kaiser Anaheim SAT; and project work for Highland Hospital and the VA Palo Alto SCI building.

 

My Flipside

In my free time, I enjoy gardening and traveling. The photo here is of my recent trip to Carmel, CA with my daughter and St. Bernard (we left my two cats at home). Along with my engineering training, I have a musical degree in piano, certification in massage therapy, and culinary training for the Olympics in Moscow.

For my own part in living a sustainable lifestyle, I do my best to be responsible for my actions and helping those in need. I can’t change the world or anybody else as easily as I can control my own decisions and actions.
