I'm Scott McGimpsey

Maker | Engineer | Leader | Developer

In short, a challenge driven problem solver.

Hello, My Name is Scott.

Scott McGimpsey, 29 years old, born and raised in beautiful Colorado, and currently living in San Diego, California. Worked on both coasts with high profile clients on everything from Wireless Power Antenna Design to Machine Learning driven Information Classification, and independently with everything from robotics to electroplating to 3d printing to graphic design.

I design solutions. Everything I've done has been in the pursuit of being better at imagining, designing, engineering, and implementing products and processes which solve problems of every shape and size. I currently work as the Chief Design Architect on a development project for Ernst & Young, where I am developing a new tool and process to resolve one of the most extreme and omnipresent challenges facing the technology-driven business world.

I bring a deep and wide expertise from the granular component design level to the system wide testing, deployment, and integration. Because of the wide field in which electronic technology is used, I've been able to grow a wide understanding of bordering fields, enabling me to lend my efforts across the entire development process. I bring a wealth of cross-disciplinary experience from interrelated fields (including product design, electrical engineering, component design, information governance, cyber security, information technologies, embedded systems, project management, software development, and graphic design) to develop solutions in the form of products, methodologies, and processes to meet new and exciting challenges.

My Education
Cradle - Grave

2010 - 2012

Bachelors of Electrical and Electronics Engineering
