Jake’s Story

“I have a passion for all things fast and anything that floats with big engines. I originally trained as a marine engineer within the leisure industry before obtaining a masters degree in mechanical engineering. I then went on to work for the Mercedes Formula 1 and Formula E teams in powertrain design before returning to the marine industry. The Twisted culture is a true amalgamation of my passions and the projects we are working on are trailblazing.”
