I am an inventor with 20 years experience of technical consulting at Cambridge Consultants
(CCL), during which time I invented many different machines and devices, often in
response to clients’ requirements, but also of my own origination.
In 1990 a group of us at CCL invented a new form of commercial Ink Jet printing and
this was spun out as Xaar Ltd (now plc). For 18 years I was Technical Director of
Xaar and saw the company develop from a 4 man start up to over 300 people in a listed
company with a £40M turnover.
I have now left Xaar and operate freelance pursuing my own ideas, acting as a mentor
to other start-ups and advising people in my fields of interest. Recently I acted
as an expert witness in a patents case involving Ink Jet printing.
