available for contract work


Born in Holland, I immigrated in 1992 to New Zealand where I have been working in product development to high volume production. I have a great passion for design and thinking outside the square. I enjoy new technology and am very much interested in the development of new alternative energy: hybrid cars, wind, sea and solar power, development of products to prevent and solve pollution, recycling and anything to make this world a better place.


work experience

t/a GBT Design Senior Mechanical Design Engineer (BE) January 1987 -

I am a qualified BE Mechanical Engineer with 30+ years work experience in design and manufacturing. I have worked full time for various manufacturing companies in product development, tool and jig design and automation with a good understanding of ‘design for manufacturing’, materials, CAD and computer software, quality control, product testing, etc. In most cases R&D, parts & material sourcing and project management were part of my job as well as writing reports and manuals. Designing is my passion. I take pride in professional design, while keeping things simple and efficient, meeting budgets and deadlines and helping companies meet their expectations. I like keeping track of new technology, learning more every day from other experts in their fields. The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don’t know . . . I am an honest person and like interaction with colleagues and dealing with third parties. Thinking outside the square, as well as looking at design issues from different angles, often results in unique and cost-efficient solutions. For design I use mainly SolidWorks and have good skills using this software. I like to take the lead on projects assigned to me and take full responsibility for the end result. While I am happy working full time I prefer working on contract, on demand or part time, minimizing valuable travel time. I can work from my home office as well as at your premises as required and can work outside normal hours including weekends. I am familiar with using cloud software and storage.
