biography

+ Mechanical Engineering Models in 3D and 2D + Industrial Design with strong emphasis on function, manufacture and assembly. + Innovative but practical approach to solve design challenges. + Vast multi-industry range of design and manufacturing experience. Attached zipped JPG and PDF file samples will give a better understanding to my work philosophy, my analytical and methodical approach and my passion for geometry and mechanical engineering than anything I can express in English. As a German trained Mech.Eng. Freelancer of 24 years I have a vast range of experience that can be applied across varied industries. I am proud of my professional conduct and expect the same from the companies I work for. My past contracts where generally project based initially but often extended to become working relationships with companies that lasted 4, 5 and 6 years and individuals and agencies that lasted over 20 years. I am single with no kids and do enjoy my freedom and have quietly been working on my own international patent for some years now which at some stage might make me financially independent. The ultimate dream is to become a philanthropist and dedicate my passion, time and resources to solve global challenges and contribute to humanity as a whole. I have some very practical ideas and am happy to exchange thoughts on that topic.
