Design Engineer

Diploma in Engineering (Mechanical)


I enjoy mechanics, trouble shooting, and problem solving … Taking a concept and generating ideas. Drafting and 3D modeling them, making 3D assemblies, and seeing them come to life … Coming up with ways to improve production, reducing defects and automating processes.

Project Experience

Formway LIFE Chair


Refurbish PDI Pouch Machine

Refurbished an old pouch converting machine. Re-design old components and tooling heads. Integrated new and safety components to comply with the company standards. Maintained systems and processes similar to an existing machine.


Mechanical Design

Designed a range of mechanical components for super yachts.

Automated Deck Hatch, a vertical and horizontal access way, opens at a push of a button and hides away.

Fly Bridge Helm Console had a flat dark glass-look finish. Push a hidden button, the monitor screens come up and display the yachts systems, the glass panels hide the yacht’s system controls. Push the button again and it slides back under the screens, allowing access to the controls.
