Creative Engineering LLC was founded in 1995 to provide a superior product development service blending creative innovation with design for manufacture. The result is a fluid development process free from traditional bottlenecks. We have invented, designed, developed and engineered a wide variety of products including consumer products, toys, medical devices, government, and industrial products.
At Creative Engineering, we curate our talent from all over the country. We’ve been lucky to find such an amazing group of individuals. With a diverse set of backgrounds, our collective experience is hungry for new challenges.
Inventing and building toys and toy mechanisms in Hasbro’s R&D department gave Paul a good understanding of the early design process as well as an appreciation for the work of Industrial Designers. At BuddyL, he was involved in all aspects of product development, performing both administrative and engineering duties such as project tracking, cost package preparation, breadboard development, engineering, prototyping, debugging, and product testing. He also traveled to China to oversee production starts, and performed creative work and on set support for TV commercials.
At BuddyL, Paul implemented Pro/Engineer and pioneered a streamlined high tech product development process which blurred the boundaries between design, engineering and manufacturing. His broad experience in product development, combined with parametric solid modeling and rapid prototyping technologies, allowed Paul to create new products with previously unthinkable speed and attention to detail.
Taking the lessons he learned, Paul founded this company in 1995, and has been providing his unique brand of “Creative Engineering” ever since.

In 25 years in the field, Norm has engineered everything from high touch industrial designed consumer products to high speed paper handling machinery. For more than a decade, Norm has been pushing the limits of the capabilities of Pro/Engineer, particularly while developing highly complex injection-molded products. Norm’s role is as technical lead and he has been involved in all aspects of the development cycle from feasibility to manufactured product. He has taught Pro/E Advanced Part and Advanced Assembly CAD classes and performed corporate Pro/E implementations.
Norm likes to work on tough projects, whether it is developing an entire bus or a compact telecommunications device. With his sensitivity to aesthetics, high level of expertise in plastic part design, mastery of CAD, and strong mechanical design skills, Norm has what it takes to meet the challenge.

Jeremy entered product development through his interest in sustainable design and developing innovative technologies. As an avid outdoorsman, he strives to improve the world around him through intelligent and responsible design. From 2007-2011, Irons worked summers as a Field Biological Technician with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in Alaska. While there, he employed his creative design skills to engineer modifications to a humane capture net-gun for seabirds and improve the ruggedness of lightweight bird-tracking devices for biological study. Jeremy particularly enjoys the iterative process of developing improved designs through Computer Aided Design and prototyping.
Jeremy started as an intern at Creative Engineering following his junior year at Montana State University. After passing the Fundamentals of Engineering exam and completing his degree in Mechanical Engineering with Minors in Aerospace and Music, he joined Creative Engineering as a Design Engineer.

Ryan discovered a passion for design engineering towards the end of his tenure at university. While participating in an entrepreneurial incubator at his alma mater, he discovered that bringing new ideas into the physical world was what he liked best. Ryan’s business oriented thought process, along with his technical background, allow him to provide innovative business solutions through engineering.
Ryan enjoys the process of brainstorming solutions and finds entertainment in engineering a design to be cost effective. At Binghamtom, he built a Mini Baja racing vehicle from scratch for his senior capstone project. He is an experienced machinist in addition to his engineering design, and parametric modeling prowess. After demonstrating some serious skills and a strong aptitude for learning as an intern at Creative Engineering, he was brought on as a full-time Design Engineer.
