Over 30 years of experience in the Electronics Industry has seen me work in a very broad range of industries, technologies, and types of company – whether that’s all the way from full-on military through to broadcast and consumer electronics.

I have been privileged to work in some fantastic companies and with some of the cleverest and nicest people anyone could ever wish to meet. As a result,  I’ve built up a network of fellow contractors and companies which would be of benefit to any person or group wishing to take almost any electronics-based design from concept through to full-scale production.
