Currently doing some part-time engineering consultancy, mucking about building things with 3D printers, CNC mills and a new desktop PCB prototyping machine, and meeting lots of really wonderful people through Airbnb, where I get to practice the domestic arts of brewing Brazilian coffee, cooking up bacon & egg breakfasts, and handling loads of washing and making beds.
Ok, I could do without that last one!
In the off season I spend time in our other house in Brazil, which we are also setting up on Airbnb. Come and visit!
