Hi! I am Jozua, a young and highly motivated product developer. From the beginning of my study I am dreaming about being involved in R&D for the outdoor sport industry. During my life I have always been on adventures: climbing, skitouring, mountaineering, camping, boy scouts, fishing , sailing ... It became my main driver in daily life and everything I do is linked with it. With this appointment I see a unique opportunity to combine and encourage my interests and skills of both my education and my passion to add value to your entreprise.

5 DIY Projects I’ve always been making things in my free time: first starting with a lowtech camping knife to cut wood, today also using prototyping techniques like CNC milling and laser cutting.

5.1 Skibuilding I am skibuilding together with my nephew since 2015. We first made a press, starting with a 3D model to CNC-mill the parts. Combining his woodworking experience with my development skills led to a nice result. Next we will try basalt fibre and change some parameters to enhance the ski performance.

5.2 TECHtextiles I converted the pattern of an Arcteryx Alpha FL to make my own hardshell jacket. With Tyvek I made a first prototype. I am especially interested in learning about the different textile production methodes like seamsealing, welding and glueing.

Alpamayo, Peru - Juli 2017

6 Mount coach I got selected to join a project organised by the Belgian mountaineering club that trains 6 young motivated climbers to experienced all round alpinists. During 2,5 years we follow multiple courses in all mountaineering disciplines in every season but also several lessons about rope handling, meteorology, avalanche safety, orientation, rescue ... Summer 2017 we went to the Cordillera Blanca, Peru, for our first independent expedition.
