I have been a professional electronics engineer for the last 25 years designing electronic products and offering bespoke technical solutions & innovation. I offer expertise in electronics, embedded systems, application software, user interface & product design using the latest but most applicable technologies in order to bring ‘innovation with purpose’ to their work. My experience, highly-skilled engineering hardware knowledge & library of ‘trusted code & designs’ enables me to provide solutions cost effectively. I believe that success & reward follows not only from creativity & effort but from a working environment which encourages flexibility through close co-operation with our customers & industry partners.
An enthusiastic professional individual, who possesses excellent communication skills and relates well to people from all backgrounds, I am a confidant, positive, organised, self-motivated person who has the ability to work well in a team, but holds the initiative and innovation to work alone. I am also methodical in both business and personal matters and have the ability to learn with a strong desire to develop further skills and constantly keep up to date with today’s latest technology. I am a good timekeeper and have a personality that shines reliability, politeness, honesty and good managerial skills, being able to work well, and problem solve under the most demanding conditions. I have many years of expertise and experience in electronic design & research, PCB design & prototyping, embedded electronic design of microprocessor and associated peripherals. My electronic talents also extend to fault finding and diagnoses at component level, and electronic problem solving.
Technical Key Skills
Design Technology & Hardware
Young Engineer For Great Britain
In the 1985 my school and electronics teacher entered me as his student for a country wide competition called, ‘Young Engineer For Great Britain’ The regional finals were held in Colchester Essex. My project designs won 1st place in Essex. This automatically entered me in to the national finals for the whole country held at Wembley London. This was a very exciting time for me as there were only 6 finalists at Wembley all hoping for first place. Sadly I only achieved second place, but this was for the whole country, so all in all, not a bad attempt! that said I will always have very fond memories of ‘Young Engineer For Great Britain’.
Radio 1 Roadshow Engineer
In the early 1990’s I was privileged be be involved with Radio 1 and Touring around the country, working alongside the Radio 1 DJ’s on the Radio 1 Roadshow. My role was technical engineer ensuring the lighting and sound equipment was set up and installed correctly. This involved working with high end broadcast equipment and audio equipment from companies such as Matamp. I had very good relations with Mat Amp in Huddersfield and ended up being the South East England Engineer for Mat. This was an exciting time for me as a young engineer working alongside professional DJs such as Gary Davis, Steve Wright, Simon Bates, Dave Lee Travis, to mention a few.
Bespoke Design Of Frank Bruno’s Swimming Pool Control System
Custom designing and overseeing the installation of my Swimming Pool Control System that was installed in Frank Bruno (Boxer) house in Brentwood, Essex. I taylor designed the complete control system for his Swimming Pool, including Cover Control, Pool Heaters & Pump Control, Pool Lighting and Temperature Control. I had a lot of enjoyment knowing my time and effort designing this professional control system was going to good use in a high profile luxury house owned by Frank Bruno, to my knowledge it is still in there today functioning reliably!
