My name is Fin. I am 22 years old from County Wexford. My father is an automotive mechanic and has a workshop right beside our house. Growing up I would spend a lot of time in the workshop where I developed a keen interest in engineering and design. Having this space allowed me to explore and ultimately lead me to choose product design in UL.
I'm interested in all aspects of design, particularly problem solving, CAD and design for additive manufacturing. I love to learn new skills and find different ways to do things, an approach I carry with me through everything I do.
