“I hired Kirk at Sublime Stericeuticals for consulting work toward thermodynamic and mass transfer proof-of-concept calculations for a freeze-drying application. He did excellent work, had his work checked for accuracy and applicability by a second engineer, and provided an exceptional report that was easy for me to understand as a non-engineer. This report has proven to be key in early fundraising efforts for development and testing of our continuous lyophilization system.
Prior to his consulting appointment at Sublime, Kirk and I worked side-by-side on several aseptic process improvement projects at Pfizer. Kirk is an A to Z specialist in Aseptic Process Engineering and always came through with innovative, practical approaches to the challenge at hand. The presentation of his end-product solutions are always well thought out. I also appreciated his candor and forward-looking, pragmatic solutions. Kirk handles his assignments straight on, distills them down, and presents several solutions while minimizing risks to implementation timelines, operational impact, product quality, and budget. I highly recommend Kirk for any and all project or process engineering work. I know I will be working with him again in Sublime’s future initiatives.”

"Kirk worked as a consultant for Alexza Pharmaceuticals commissioning and validating process equipment. Kirk is very detailed oriented and does a very good job of defining project objectives and goals. I would highly recommend Kirk for any equipment validation work. Kirk's attitude and enthusiasm was exceptional."

"I met Kirk when he working as a consultant at Impax Laboratories in a role as Project Engineer. Kirk was managing an $11M design build project to gut, renovate, commission and qualify the facilities and equipment for a 70,000 sq. ft. temperature and humidity controlled cGMP warehouse, complete with a raw materials QC Sampling Laboratories and DEA Certified Schedule II Controlled Substance Vault. This project had many stakeholders, with differing needs and wants, which on a project of this size resulted in a great number of issues and challenges. Kirk dealt with the issues head on with decisive options for the stakeholders and efficient execution of the decisions made. The combination of Kirks experience, engineering knowledge and commitment to getting a project done right, on time and at the best value for his customers is inspiring and unique in my 25 years working in this industry. I would highly recommend Kirk for any project engineering or equipment validation work.Kirk worked as a consultant for Impax Laboratories as a Project Engineer: designing, building, and commissioning the facilities and equipment for a 70,000 sq. ft. temperature and humidity controlled cGMP warehouse, with QC Sampling Laboratories and Schedule II Controlled Substance Vault. Kirk is unprecedented at dealing with details and issues which, as usual, occurred during any large construction project. To speak favorably of Kirk for any project engineering, facilities engineering, or equipment validation, for Kirk's knowledge and commitment to engineering was extraordinary.”

“Kirk worked as a consultant for Matrix Laboratories as a Process Engineer: designing and validating the equipment for the aseptic processing of an injectable collagen based API. Kirk’s ability to assess an issue and design a solution is without equal, dealing with the myriad of details and issues which arise in an aseptic environment. I would endorse Kirk for any aseptic engineering or equipment validation work. Kirk's knowledge and commitment to engineering was singular and above reproach.”
