RssOptical or Opto-mechanical Engineer

I am looking for contract work in Optics or Opto-Mechanics. I will accept per diem work, but I prefer to work from my home office, visiting the job site when necessary for testing, training and assembly. I have 10 years experience in optical design using Zemax and another 3 years of experience with SolidWorks designing opto-mechanical hardware. I generally handle the completion of all drawings, parts procurement, and vendor relations during the prototype phase.
