Precision engineer – Indentured Toolmaker
Mechanical/optical design engineer for scientific research
I feel constantly compelled to produce pieces of art, I’m always considering new projects to pursue, whether it be music production, paintings or digital work.
My working life is a huge creative inspiration to me, I spend my days designing, building and installing equipment for scientific research for universities world wide. The equipment is used for a myriad of research areas including cancer and heart disease. I feel very proud and lucky to have such an interesting job that also helps humanity. I’ve always been fascinated by the link between science and art, I feel we have so much to learn from science, even more so now than ever!
