About me

From a young age I have always been interested in technical "things", electronic or mechanical. At 14 I rebuilt a motorbike engine and from the age of 16 was repairing tv's and game consoles. From the onset I knew I would enjoy a job in the technical field. After finishing school I worked in a local abattoir with the goal to become an electrician apprentice. After 6 months this did not pan out so I joined the Royal Australian Air Force where I work still as an Avionics Technician.

Nowadays I provide technical consultation and build multirotors in my spare time. Although I have a unique qualification to do this, it is only a side job as I am currently employed full time. My passion in the multirotor scene has seen me provide professional solutions to companies globally as well as the respect in the community.
