I have worked in the automotive and product design fields for the past 27 years. In that time I have worked on a diverse and varied array of products for the national and international markets.
My primary role is that of an Exterior Concept Modeller using Alias SurfaceStudio, widely regarded as the leading software in its field. I have vast experience working with Studio Engineers and Designers on new vehicle platforms, creating proportion & volume model studies, building concept cars and so on. I also have extensive experience creating surfaces from laser scans, engineering input and styling sketches.
In previous contracts I have managed teams of digital modellers, created project timing plans, estimated financial budgets, as well as undertaking a large amount of the digital modelling myself. As part of these past positions I have liaised with the company’s design, engineering and model making management, deliver completed exteriors and hardparts on time. In addition to this I have, at times, been heavily involved in the investigation of new or modified vehicle platforms, creating exterior proportion & volume model studies, building concept and show cars, as well as managing, overseeing and working on future production models until design freeze.
I also have considerable experience of real-time visualisation and rendering (both on screen and in virtual reality) using Autodesk VRed, as well as website design and graphic design, in addition to my formal college training as a Product Designer.
I now work on a consultant basis within the automotive and product design arena. At present I am mainly working with Makkina an Automotive Design Consultancy based in London and Bentley Motors of Crewe.
