Mechanical Engineer

Information & Background

 I feel that I have always been an engineer at heart, as a youngster I was regularly taking mechanical things apart and trying to find out how they were built and worked. I was constantly looking to satisfy my curiosity of the physical world around me.

I studied hard to understand and master related subjects and had the opportunity to take part in several interesting projects that allowed me to see at first hand what engineering was all about.

The nature of my degree course and job experience has prepared me for the real world. Both involved a great deal of independent research, requiring initiative, self-motivation and a wide range of skills. 

I am a fast and accurate worker, with a keen eye for detail and I aim to be one of the best in my field. I am able to take on the responsibility of my position and have the enthusiasm and determination to ensure that I make a success of any challenge.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I hope to hear from you soon.
