I am 52 years old and I am currently employed by Epsilon Engineering as a mechanical technician. I spent 19 years of my life maintaining aircraft and overhauling helicopter components. During the last 6 years as an aircraft maintenance engineer, I was introduced to Solidworks. In 2001, I was given an opportunity to do CAD and CFD meshing full time and I traded my spanners for a computer. I am passionate about CAD modeling in general and truly amazed about the quality of the CAD "Art" on the GRABCAD website. I fly RC helicopters and planes in my free time and I love music and archery.
I completed matric and joined the South African Air Force, where I completed my National Technical Certificate up to N3 level. After that I joined Aero Sales Workshops, NAC at Rand Airport, where I worked on various aircraft types, including helicopters.
