Skils


I have fifteen years experience in engineering, primarily as a consultant design engineer of electrical systems in marine engineering and petrochem refinery system design.



Several of these positions have involved taking a conceptual system design through to installation of the equipment and cable. Systems I have worked on include entertainment, power, lighting, control, fire alarm, PA, and various computer networks.



Throughout my time in engineering, I have learned and utilized several 3D modeling design products including Tribon, Intergraph ISDP & Calma. System drawings (one lines/schematics) were produced using the various releases of AutoCAD, CADDS & Microstation.
