Introduction

I am a Mechanical Designer pursuing a career in the Mining & Minerals sector.

I collaborate in teams that work with people from various disciplines to decide where all the equipment, fittings and structure will go in a mine.

My interest in mining was stimulated by the country I already call home. The operation of mines, the unique equipment and the culture that surrounds it all makes me want to be part of it all.

My continuing interests lie in reading history and studying religion.
I am fascinated by the history of languages, how they evolved and how language influences and is influenced by human migration and settlement.

I also spend much of my time as a blogger at ManiaRavings.com. I do my part socializing and networking with all sorts of people. It truly helps in broadening my view of the world we live in.

Cheers !
