My background

I have a very varied background, both in work and in my social life; from working on ceramic superconductors to representing Great Britain at the World Age Group Triathlon Championships.

My background has helped to foster my creative outlook and give me the confidence to apply it to all parts of life.

I worked as a senior research fellow at Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) for nearly 20 years, mainly on aerospace and automotive projects.  I left WMG in December 2011 and set up Pyramid Composite Design.
