How long have you been at AMI?
4 years

What experience from the manufacturing sector do you bring to the team? / What do you bring to your role at AMI?
I had no prior experience, but over the years I have learnt about the importance of Manufacturing & Engineering and the processes involved in making the UK one of the top manufacturing nations in the world.

How do you get to work?
I have a 5 minute walk.

What is your idea of a perfect day out?
Clifftop walks on a blazing hot day, the distant rumble of the sea mingling with the warbles of Skylarks. Following the smell of a BBQ down to the beach where my friends are waiting for me.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
Romp around Devon taking photos.

What is the best thing about working for AMI? / Favourite part of your job?
Not knowing what I’ll be photographing next – from robots to peanuts.

What is your most annoying personality trait?

In three words how would your colleagues describe you?
Dark. Ambivert. Nincompoop

Something not many people know about you?
I am Cub Scout Draughts Champion of 1996

What’s the most useless talent you have?
I can make small blue things disappear – no really.
It’s a superpower. Not only that, I have a Phenomenon. It’s called Raynaud’s Phenomenon and it causes my hands to go a deadly shade of blue (and sometimes purple with orange spots).
The superpower is activated upon prolonged exposure to cold environments or merely touching cold items. Naturally, warmth and hot liquids deprive me of my phenomenon
