About

Ever since i can remember I've been taking things apart and attempting to build them back again better. you name it, I've probably ripped it apart, peered inside it or have a good idea to how it works in the first place.
I specialise in making 3D designs on Autodesk Inventor, specifying materials and doing some stress analysis, then creating engineering drawings for manufacture. Being able to design to military standards and adhere to other numerous standards, including a long list of ISO standards.

My working life has consisted of manufacturing and fitting for 9 years, and now to a heavily design based work for the past 3 years. And now more recently i am looking to branch out and offer my engineering services further afield with the hopes of becoming a full time freelance engineer in search of innovative projects that spark my interest.

Unfortunately i can't talk publicly about my previous contracted work, however i can talk about my engineering interest outside of work that has lead me to build;
1. Motorbike from the ground up, completing all the work myself, including engine, gearing, electrics and painting.
2. Computer for myself and a few friends over the years, creating custom units based on required needs.
3. Security Torch with the power of a car headlight.
4. Converting a Panel Van into an insulated Day van, complete with 4 layers of insulation and sound proofing, windows and electrics. Also replacing the Turbo and brakes.
5. Designing and building a TV within a coffee table for playing retro games or displaying D&D maps.
6. 3D printing solutions to problems that i come across in day to day life.
7. Designing and building a Rock tumbler for use with 3D printing parts to smooth the surface ready for painting. specifying the motor, gear ratio and media to be used.
8. And many many more, that are a bit too small to list here.

My interests in engineering are as follows:
Automotive, Mechanical, electrical, weight saving & structural design, material design and sustainability to name a few.

I'm currently learning:
Python 3 coding language, with the hopes of creating some raspberry Pi projects.
