From 1999 to 2002, I studied a degree in Transport Design at the University of Huddersfield.
Building upon the CAD skills learnt on my degree course in Solidworks and Autocad, I subsequently became conversant in Rhino and SolidEdge. This led to my involvement in the design of bespoke Vintage style vans, funeral vehicles, commercial vehicle interior conversions, van-based motorhome interiors and the exterior styling of larger motorhomes.
In light of my CAD expertise, I was tasked with CNC programming, learning the Solidcam, Alphacam and Lantek Expert packages to program parts produced by in-house 3 and 5 axis CNC machines and laser cutters.
My responsibility also extended to component sourcing, leading to spearheading programmes of weight and cost saving.
