ABOUT

I am a passionate Motorsports enthusiast, with recent work at McLaren Automotive as a vehicle technician in the vehicle development team.

I am an organised and efficient individual looking to develop my wide range of skills within the automotive and racing industry.

In previous years, I have worked for multiple semi-professional and professional Motorsport teams, as a number one/two mechanic and tyre engineer.  I also have wide experience working in low volume vehicle manufacturing at Ginetta Cars.
