About Candidate

With nearly 19 years of experience in the composite industry, I have acquired essential skills and knowledge
both first-hand and as a manager. My strengths lie in prepregs, along with fundamental knowledge and
experience of wet lamination, resin infusion, and RTM.
I also have experience in CAD software and 3D printing. I have experience and training on Zund kit cutting
machines and have the ability to program and run Autoclaves. Every new challenge presented to me is seen
as an opportunity to continue developing upon my current skill set.
