I have been a long-time member and sometime Chair of the Gauge O Guild Technical Committee. I am currently Editor of the Guild News.
When I'm not playing at model engineering, I am a design engineer, specializing in turbomachinery (turbines, pumps, compressors, fans, etc). As a consultant, I provide services to a variety of equipment manufacturers. I have also acted as an expert witness in legal submissions. I am author, editor, and publisher of a range of engineering textbooks.
And in case you are wondering, I am neither the Bishop of Leeds nor the bass player with the Kaiser Chiefs who share my name (yes, I have been asked).
