With 25 years of practical design experience I can solve your design issues quickly and efficiently. My aim is to get to a robust, realistic and easily manufacturable solution as fast as possible.

I have direct and extensive experience in designing for;

  • Sheetmetal
  • Diecasting
  • Aluminium extrusions
  • Plastic injection moulding parts and tools
  • Rapid prototyping
  • Machined parts
  • Composite manufacturing

My skills in these areas are not based on just theory, I have a fabrication workshop in which I build real world products, as well as the many personal projects I undertake. Steel fabrication, machining and CNC routing are available in-house. This real world skill helps immeasurably in creating real world products.

If it can’t be done in house I have a wide range of trusted suppliers and contacts for outsourcing. These are relationships that I have built up over many years both in New Zealand and overseas.

My clients often require prototypes for presentations or as working products for testing, this is a core part of the process as it highlights the good and bad aspects of the design. This way a great final product can be produced.
