I am a multi discipline, self-motivated draftsperson, with over 35 years’ experience in the Engineering and Drafting industry. I am a team player with a good understanding of where my strengths and weaknesses lie and have confidence in my ability to accept any challenge within my field of expertise and even some outside of that. Should I feel unsure about something, I have no hesitation in asking for advice or help.

I have a proven track record with many multi - national companies both here in South Africa and in Australia and also with some smaller, independent engineering companies.

I have been the lead draftsman at many of these companies and feel my leadership skills are of a good standard particularly when it comes to communication with and motivation of the people under my supervision.
