Denise is responsible for materials engineering. And for supplying the engineering fuel (i.e., coffee) for the rest of the team. Denise has so much experience working as an engineer, that she was reluctant to disclose her birth date to us – we just assumed that it was her modesty. But more importantly, she and her husband, Raymond, supply us with freshly roasted (i.e., still warm when delivered) coffee every week to lubricate our rusty minds – an important role indeed.


“I am a coffee fanatic. Once you go to proper coffee, you can’t go back. You cannot go back.”
