I started out studying commercial art at college and entered industry an illustrator. Later I returned to college to study mechanical engineering having been identified as having a talent for design. More recently I have been able to combine my artistic interests with mechanical engineering by taking on an industrial design role developing aircraft cockpits. I am passionate about design and innovation and believe strongly that in order for good design to see the light of day it has to be recognized. To be recognized it has to be presented compellingly.

Started out with an ambition to be an artist, transitioned to commercial art when I realized artists are generally very poor. Returned to education to become a designer (mechanical) then became absorbed by computers and their application to design and graphics so I embarked on a computer degree course. Never did finish the degree course as work and family commitments demanded too much time.
