I have worked in the automotive and product design fields for the past 23 years. In that time I have worked on a diverse and varied array of products for the national and international markets.
My primary skill is that of an Exterior Concept Modeller using Alias AutoStudio, 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 my current contract I manage a team of Digital Modellers, creating Project Time Plans and Financial Budgets. Liasing with the company’s Design, Engineering and Model Making management, delivering completed exteriors and hardparts on time. In addition to this I am heavily involved in the investigation of new and 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 working with Bentley Motors in Crewe.
