About Me

I am a experienced electronics engineer based in Bristol, UK, with almost half a decade of experience in the industry. I have worked for CERN, the European Space Agency (ESA), for start-ups, and for multinational aerospace and defence companies.

I excel at taking 'back of the envelope' ideas, through to designs, prototypes, and to mass production. I specialise in power electronics, from simulation to layout. I have also previously held the Certified LabVIEW Developer (CLD) certificate.


I have experience in the following:


Requirements capture

Circuit design

Simulation & modelling - LTspice / SIMetrix / Simulink / MATLAB

PCB schematic & layout

Automation testing

3D printing


Programming  (LabVIEW, embedded C, python, PHP, and many others)

Code Reviews


Hourly rate is currently discounted as I gain exposure.


£40/hr. I can offer between 10-20 hours per week.

Naveed, CTO

Max was very helpful, attentive, and quick with the work we asked him to carry out. His work was professional, and to the point, we are very happy with his service

What I Do

My skills have grown over time from analogue hardware design, to digital control of switch mode converters, all the way through to power supply design and layout for particle accelerators. I am meticulous in my approach, including documentation and simulation, and no detail is too small. This lets me offer my customers a wide range of skills, for almost any project.

I can offer turn key solutions, revamp an old design to make it smaller/use the latest ICs, debug and test.


Electronic Design

From a drawing on the back of an envelope, I will help you brng your idea to life


Electronic Repairs

From 1980s oscilloscopes, through to modern day SMD electronics, I can repair it.


PCB Layout

I have laid out complex multilayer boards for particle accelerators, satellites and motor controllers.

From CERNs fibre optic notch filter, to musical playing tesla coils, I've programmed them all in LabVIEW 


Simulation & Modelling

I specialise in power supply modelling and simulation, along with analogue simulation, to ensure your design is working before PCB development
