About

I’m a trained and qualified engineer. I started my career studying manufacturing – in aerospace, whilst studying I took part in several notable industry projects. One such project was the decommissioning and restoration (for exhibition) of Concorde.

After graduating I went into industry as a composites engineer where I produced components and assemblies for various international engineering/aerospace entities such as Rolls-Royce (producing components for the Trent 700 Jet engine), BAE and Airbus (producing various structural sections/assemblies and control surfaces).

After leaving manufacturing I went on to take part in many successful projects in commercial property development, providing CAD/consultation services as well as branching into facilities and project management.

I currently operate my own workshop where I design, prototype and develop products for clients as well as my own private projects; I have worked with a broad range of clients – from toy manufacturers, to furniture makers to startups seeking to manufacture commercial products.

My personal projects predominantly revolve around unmanned aircraft/surface platforms and advanced composite components.
