About

Working on cars, machine and tooling makes that’s my passion. I enjoy both the process of modelling stuff as well as turning wrenches. Mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic or electrical, I love it all. Solving that persistent problem or breathing life into a machine? That’s what gets me excited. It doesn’t matter to me if that’s physical turning wrenches and soldering wires or digital using CAD

Some of the work I’ve done in the past include:

- Solving manufacturing problems in stamping, welding or assembly

- Restoring and retrofitting vehicles for expedition, mining and professional use.
- Designing progressive dies, deep draw dies and detail parts and subassemblies.

- Designing an electric drivetrain for a 70 series, Toyota Land Cruiser

When I’m not working I like to play videogames, ride my motorcycle or listen to some music.
