I love building new things -- starting from a sketch in a notebook and transforming ideas into products that add value for the customer. Professionally, I'm doing this at Cover through mechatronics and computer-aided design. Personally, I'm a passionate maker, with a diverse set of skills and experience in hardware/software projects.
I'm happy with my current full-time role, but always looking for exciting projects! Please feel free to connect at firstname.lastname@example.org or connect on Linkedin for more details.
