A communications & PR professional with a passion for building engaging copy, I help bring words to life through all forms of modern content. I draw on extensive content marketing experience, including a stint at one of the UK's most successful recruitment groups, where I was responsible for all internal and external communications across a portfolio of 17 specialist businesses. Now back on Kiwi soil after my extended OE, I’ve been helping organisations across New Zealand and Australia get their brand heard through fresh, compelling messaging. From websites and reports, to blogs, social media and email marketing (and everything in between), you name, I’ve written it. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a quick edit or a full website refresh - I take on projects big and small! As an avid football (and QPR) fan, in my spare time you’ll often find me at the nearest football pitch!

I was recommended for the award by my Advanced Arts Teacher who has been a professional Illustrator and Graphic Artist for Professional Athletes on The Pittsburgh Steelers, and Becket Magazine. After High school I attended Edinboro University of PA for 4.5 years studying Computer (3D) Animation & Graphic Design. While in my last year of school I was given the opportunity to work as a Production Assistant on an Independent Film (Currently in Final Editing) where I was the Lead Sound and Lighting Tech I. Soon after completing several location Film Shoots, I was hired as the Lead Graphic Artist & Craftsman for an up and coming Sign Company & its affiliated Custom Framing Company.

Experienced Mechanical Engineer with a solid background in design, calculation, detailing, and manufacturing processes. Capable of developing original solutions anticipating the design consequences and completing projects to specifications in the first attempt. Possess project management and team management skills, enabling successful interaction with customers, suppliers, and co-workers. SKILLS AND TECHNIQUES Mechanical design: long experience in the design, from cradle to grave, of a variety of machineries and mechanical devices, and in specific: • Complete design of CNC tool machines, including CNC spindle units, rotary tables, chucks and part-holding equipments, pneumatic and hydraulic systems, chip conveyor systems, automatic loading systems with robots, bedplates, welded metal structures and protection guards; • Design of special machines and material handling equipments. • Design of large capacity overhead cranes. As part of the design process developed experience in: • Design and sizing of motor driven and hydraulic servo systems. • Design of pneumatic and hydraulic systems. • Selection of appropriate market available components. • Selection of machined parts materials and heat treatments. • Design of safety equipment in compliance with the European Machine Directive 2006/42/EC. • GD&T according with ISO and ASME Y14.5-2009 standards; DFMA. • Solid understanding of form fit & function and tolerance stack up analysis theory (practice with tools as TolAnalyst/Solidworks and MitCalc). • Material procurement experience. • Technical documentation and end user manual writing according with European Machine Directive 2006/42/EC. Anticipating technical problems: main experience in the design of special machineries, by their nature prototypes. Been able to make a solid design at the first attempt on several projects, successfully meeting the design requirements. Among the projects, at least 30 tool machines and 10 overhead cranes. Machine elements calculation: developed several complex excel calculation spreadsheets that helped myself and my colleagues in selecting and properly sizing the most critical components of the machineries. Design and calculations of large metal welded structures: designed girder type bridge overhead cranes based on international standard calculation guidelines. FEA analysis: validated several welded structures and mechanical assemblies using Solidworks Simulation. Team management skills: in Danieli Centro Cranes managed an increasing team that finally was made of eight people, most of which not experienced in the field and in need of mentoring. Ability to work with limited or no supervision, efficiently multi-tasking and reprioritizing: in particular during the time as self-employed I had the chance of developing the ability of being self-reliant and of dealing with strict deadlines. Later on I have been able to successfully apply these skills organizing the job of the design departments I have been in charge. In Danieli Centro Cranes our Design Department had one of the highest productivity of the corporate group. Ability of effectively support the sales managers: often met with prospect customers of different countries to present our company and the solution we propose for their technical problem, receiving very positive feedbacks on the presentations and the solidity of our technical approach, eventually receiving purchasing orders.
