A Naval Architect by training (registered CEng UK), with a wide range of experience from projects covering initial structural design, detailed analysis and through build implementation and regulatory facilitation. Having worked for the last 10+ years in practical engineering design, my primary focus is to work to the limitations of the project time scale, materials and workforce capability.

Projects have ranged from support structures for 100tonne pieces of equipment three stories above the deck of a ship, scratch designed A-frame for launch and recovery of ROVs to design evaluation of wave energy devices.

Personal projects have covered electrical and electronic, metal casting, engine re-builds, vehicle restoration, new vehicle design, PCB design, and many others.
