Started at RGT in 1991 as Technician Trainee. Following apprenticeship, started as a draughtsman within ‘Application dept’. Standard GT packages with site specific ductwork and foundation design. 1996 internal move to ‘package design’, where new auxiliary systems were designed. This included fuel and oil systems, underbases, couplings and guards & maintenance tooling.  In 2000 I began a PT Mechanical Engineering Degree (5 yr) at Nottingham Trent before moving to the Engineering team.  

In 2007 I moved to Dresser Rand to join the steam turbine design team, then re-launcing small steam turbine products at Alstom. In 2010 I moved to Rolls-Royce in Derby to work on Trent 1000 (pack E) upgrades within the Combustion and Casings dept. Main focus being to re-design the inner guide nozzle casing (RIDN) between the back of the combustor and the HP turbine stator.

In 2011 I joined Turbine Efficiency as an Engineer, and accepted the role of Engineering Manager in 2012.
