A typical day at work involves…

There is no typical day... This is what I love.

I learnt my trade by…

Running the Ocean Energy business at Voith Hydro for almost eight years whilst acting as CEO of Voith Hydro Ocean Current Technologies for three years and as non-executive director of Voith Hydro Wavegen for roughly six years. I am also a director on the Ocean Energy Europe Board.

What's the best thing about working for SME?

I believe SME has an exciting product, which provides an answer to a lot of open questions that the incumbants of the tidal current sector have not yet answered. Moreover, I like the start-up atmosphere where things get done in a very effective way.

How do you relax and the end of the day?

Playing with my two little daughters (two years and eight months) and after they are in bed I try to recover from this excitement over a glass of red wine and have good conversations with my wife.
