I started AXN-RXN Engineering seven years ago in Saint Paul, MN. I told myself that if I passed my Professional Engineering exams that I would try to go it alone as a freelance/self-employed engineer. Just at that time some very interesting sculptural work came up in NYC, so I left my job at WhiteBoard product development to pursue expanding my sculptural engineering portfolio. The Saint Paul Cooperative worked well as a studio between NYC and the Twin Cities for a couple years, but I eventually moved out to Brooklyn full-time.
While in Brooklyn i helped co-found the Kingsland Design and Engineering Lab. This was a cooperative Design/Build shop that offered the tools and help to other self-employed engineers and designers in the NY area. After about five great years at the Kingsland D&E in Brooklyn, I've decided to move my live and work back to the Twin Cities and set up shop once again.
I'm currently running AXN-RXN engineering from a temporary office in my home in south Minneapolis. I am actively looking for a suitable studio in the area where I can offer the same services as I did for my clients when I was working at Kingsland D&E. But, I am also excited to work with past colleagues in the Twin Cities area to build something greater.
Stay Tuned! There should be exciting projects and announcements coming along shortly!
