Gerard Boterman

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.
