What inspired you to pursue a career in your field?
The idea of working in an engineering field was implanted in me since the early days of primary school. All the teachers at school told me I was good at maths and problem solving and engineering would be a great field to utilise and hone those skills. By the time University came around I had met several engineers who shared their experiences and stories with me. Listening to them has given me the drive to develop and design something which will help and benefit others.

A good sense of humour. Many humorous stories from my wife, friends and family and of course my colleagues at work.
