Job title

Company

Industry

Experience
, I started working on projects in my particular field during my college years before I graduated and have been working ever since then.
Education
  1. BA in Animation
  2. BEng in Mechatronics
Favourite subjects in school
I wasn’t very academic. I worked to attain the grades I needed but I didn’t really enjoy any of the subjects I was doing – none of them were targeted towards problems in my opinion, they were all just too general.
The best thing about my job
I love problem-solving and also the inventing process.

The most important thing is to be passionate about what you’re doing. It can be pretty difficult at times and in those times, the only thing that gets you through it are the little successes you achieve during the week or the month or by solving a problem or getting a new client.

Owning and running a company isn’t for everybody – you just must be passionate about what you’re doing otherwise you won’t survive.

My Main Tasks

My main responsibility is to ensure that my staff are not bored!  I provide them with sufficient activities to keep them mentally engaged with their work. I work to keep them expanding their knowledge base. Key skills involved in my role are time-management skills, people skills, predicting future trends and the ability to trust yourself in your decisions.

Challenges

Funnily enough I don’t like doing paperwork, in fact I rather despise it!

Who Influence Me

Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Bill Gates and believe it or not, the guy who designed the Kalashnikov! (Mikhail Kalashnikov).

Work/Life Balance

If I was to think about it honestly, it does and it doesn’t. I do really enjoy what I’m doing so I could be considered a workaholic – but I love my work. I would nearly go as far as to consider my work one of the main aspects of my lifestyle.

Most Useful Aspects of my Education

As far as my secondary education goes, not a lot. Unfortunately, nothing which I was learning in school was sufficient and I don’t blame the teachers. I believe that it was my job to request what I wanted to learn more about and to go out and explore what I would be interested in and then ask more about that, as opposed to just waiting on my teachers to give me different things to learn about. I don’t blame my teachers at all but I do regret not knowing about different fields and industries earlier on.

Useful Work Experience

Work experience doesn’t have to be given by somebody else – you can actually give it to yourself. What I mean by that, is that you can take up your own projects and see how well you do with those and that would eventually build up your own personal portfolio. For example, if you tried to build your own drone/RC car or something at home or even just started tinkering about with interesting projects you would receive a huge boost mentally. After that, you could go and get some professional experience with engineering firms/companies if your interest still persists.
