I’m an adaptable and responsible Chartered Mechanical Engineer with over 15 years’ experience using advanced design and simulation tools and techniques. I'm member of the IET and IMI and I've been awarded the CEng (Chartered Engineer) accreditation by the IMechE (Institution of Mechanical Engineers) on May 2017. I have a clear, logical mind with a practical approach to problem solving and a drive to see things through to completion. I enjoy working on my own initiative as much as being part of a team. In short, I am reliable, trustworthy, hardworking, and eager to learn.
