Precision engineer – Indentured Toolmaker
Mechanical/optical design engineer for scientific research
Electronic music producer
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!
I have been exploring the connection with art and engineering in a new project that's due completion this Spring. The frames the work will be shown in are designed and manufactured by myself. This industrial feel will be balanced by the simplicity and beauty of the artwork itself.
See current art project for more.
I'm inspired by:
Large urban spaces/cities
Relationship between science and art
New materials and technology
Ambient and electronic music

Tools used in my process are mainly:
CNC milling machine, manual lathe, 3D printer, scalpel, CAD software (Solid Edge), brushes, pillar drill, hand tools, pencil, rulers, Adobe Illustrator and a laser cutter.
