A mechanical engineering graduate from the University of Bath, I also developed into an international mountain biker during my studies. Initially choosing to follow a career in cycling, I still had the ‘maker’ mindset that lead me to pursue an engineering degree. I originally created this website to document projects that I complete around my racing and training, in order to keep my brain as active as my legs!

Whilst I still love riding my bike, I have retired from racing and I now primarily work as a Research & Development Engineer for Fraser Anti-Static Techniques. It involves the full breadth of my skills but I still keep this blog up to date with my own personal projects.


JBR Engineering Research Limited is the name of my engineering consultancy, specialising in: Concept and prototype to production development/construction/testing; MATLAB/Simulnk; Embedded systems; Mechatronics; Systems modelling and simulation; Software development; Control systems.
