What advice would you give to your younger self? Don't be afraid to take controlled risks and don't think too hard about career decisions - if your gut feeling is to go for it then just do it! It's better to regret something you tried than regret not trying something at all!
What is your favorite engineered/manufactured product? Anything Apple! I love the quality, the care and attention that goes into designing their renowned and class-leading user experience.
Tell us one interesting fact about yourself that not many people know. My first car was a 1966 Hillman Imp which I restored from a very sorry state when I was 16! I still own the car today although it’s been off the road and cosy in my garage since I got married!
If you weren't in manufacturing what would be your dream job? I would have loved to run my own electronics design/manufacturing company.
