He is a career technical specialist, focussing on Systems Engineering of complex Medical Device products. His knowledge and experience places him directly at the interface between R&D and QA–often a pain point for Medical Device companies arising from poor mutual understanding of each other’s needs and drivers – allowing him to contribute with both the glue and the grease which the development process needs.
He strongly believes that good processes hold the key to good products, and that a first principles understanding of stakeholders’ needs combined with first-rate visual communication are the key to good processes. And that good documentation is a natural outcome of good processes.
He enjoys his work, is versatile, passionate about delivering high quality engineering withclear communications, and is motivated by technical challenge, learning new skills and enjoyable teamwork.
