biography

I was born in 1965, I'm married with 3 children. I'm Currently working for Nu-Instruments designing mass spectrometers. Most of my career has been spent designing equipment for use with military aircraft. I have many years experience with AutoCAD and several with SolidWorks. I am a certified SolidWorks professional. I enjoy producing inventive and ingenious solutions to challenging design problems. In my work I often have to balance a variety of conflicting requirements such as development time, manufacturing time, cost of materials, efficiency, ergonomics, aesthetics, reliability and maintainability. I like to give attention to details. I can analyse designs for stress using FEA. I can design electrical equipment to comply with the LV directive and EMC and thermal requirements. I can assess designs for H&S, carrying our risk assessments.
