1985 Bulit my first car based on a VW Beetle. I loved off road buggies and bikes! This was more fun than my DT175.

About Me

A VW air-cooled enthusiast since the early 1980's, self taught engine builder starting in 1984, I built my first Baja when 15 and drove it for the next 6 years while attending the first 6 BugJams (www.bugjam.co.uk). Then took a side step into flat four Alfa's and Bikes before returning to the VW scene and a passion for drag racing.

Having worked for Boss Trucks and BAE as an illustrator, I moved into design and large format print. I became Studio Manager at a local design house before starting my own business. I then sold Evolution Designs UK Ltd after 8 years of trading and moved back into middle management within large format print and graphic design, however, I always wanted to try working with classic cars. I was made redundant from Preview Design whilst working in marketing and project management; this was the impetus I needed to try something different for a while!

In Aug 2010 I started working for Panelkraft as the mechanic! The work was varied and every day was different, I learnt so much in the 2 years that I spent there, I currently help to maintain the Facebook and Web pages. I also designed the Panelkraft logo. Find some of their superb work on the links page.

2013 brought another change of direction and a move into technology within a middle school. I've been trained to use a wealth of workshop machinery from lathes to 3D printers. Working within school term time also gives me more opportunity to work on the odd commission and of course 'the Hun'!
