About

I offer Mechanical Design and Engineering services to a wide variety of projects. These can range from full product life cycle, starting from a clean sheet, to design evolution of an existing part/system.

Engineering services start with obtaining a clear understanding of the brief and ensuring both parties expectations are aligned. Engineering calculations and documentation will be used where appropriate and recorded in a 'history log'. I can present work-in-progress designs and work through an iterative design process with reviews at agreed milestones.

I have extensive experience in surface design which lends it's to product design task as well as certain mechanical applications.
