I am a consultant for product design and development. What I do is to provide mechanical design and develop- ment support for companies who want to build their own products. This is chiefly for products that have to be mass produced. Skills that I have developed over the years include Computer Aided Design (CAD) and manufacturing techniques for mass production of components made of plastic, sheet metal, pressure die cast, and rubber.

During my CFL experience I had a lot of catching up to do because of my learning disabilities. I of course also faced many hurdles and challenges that one encounters when growing up. But I always had the feeling that I belonged to a very responsible community and I accepted most of the responsibilities that came along with it.

Looking back at my CFL experience, I consider myself very fortunate to have grown up in CFL. The school is probably responsible for making me take up a lot of ownership and pride in what I do. Ownership, pride, thoroughness and some good fortune seem to be the fundamentals for a job well done. In short CFL worked out well for me.
