About your job
I lead the High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) team in Stafford in the UK as part of the Grid Solutions Business. We help connect power grids together and enable bulk transfer of power across large distances very efficiently.
GE Volunteer activities
Im pretty new to GE so just starting to help drive the team to engage with STEM activities. In previous companies I’ve been involved in loads of activities with the EDT to help 6th form students learn about engineering and solve real world engineering problems in teams.
Why you volunteer
Because I want to ensure we inspire the next generation to keep making the world better.
Favourite volunteer project
Bring your kids to work – great fun for the kids and a way to bring pride into the work place. These type of events never fail to make an impact on the visitors and the hosts.
I love outdoor activities; running, walking, cycling and camping. When I’m at home my favourite pastime is BBQ’ing for the family, but only when the sun is shining!
You become responsible, forever, for what you've tamed.
