About

Throughout the past 10 years I have been involved quite extensively with multiple different CAD Packages. Starting with Pro-desktop during my College years and then moving onto projects using Creo-parametric, Autodesk 2D and 3D as well as Solidworks. Because I have been immersed in Computer Aided Design for such a large percentage of my adult life, I have developed a extensive knowledge of the medium as well as being able to adapt to new programs and method comfortably.

6+ Years of Pro-desktop experience throughout Senior school. Includes GCSE and A-level design projects as well as multiple shorter projects. Received an Arkwright Scholarship for Engineering potential, CAD proficiency was required in the examination phase.

Self taught Creo Parametric for a 2 month concept design contract to develop a medical device patent.

3+ Years of AutoCAD and Solidworks at University where 4 hours a week was spent on a dedicated CAD course. Was lead design Engineer for 2nd year cross-functional group design project to develop a remote controlled Hovercraft.

1 Year spent at Cummins Turbo Technologies as an Intern in the Supplier Quality Improvement Engineering department where I worked on Product improvement teams using Creo-Parametric.
