About

I am a motivated aerospace engineer with experience in a variety of engineering and technical roles. I have worked in the aerospace sector for over 10 years, and have a proven track record of leadership, analysis quality and delivering on time.

I am able to work effectively both independently and part of a team of any size. Flexible and adaptable in relation to customer requirements and commercially aware of the wider industry.

In my spare time, I enjoy writing music, watchmaking and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
