ABOUT

Welcome to my personal portfolio site. I find it difficult to collate all the different aspects of my life and put them into a cohesive site. But here’s my attempt in my website.

I am a Primary School Teacher by day, and artist, creative, designer, maker, and luthier by night. 

CREATIVE

Ever since I was young, I’ve been drawing, making, building, and designing. Now, I use those experiences to create.

MINI

CLASSIC MINI LE 1980

Introducing: MAHVIN

I own a 1980 Mini LE, built in New Zealand. Over the time I’ve had it, I’ve nearly replaced every working part.

In 2018, I began the long and challenging journey of removing the A-series engine and replacing it with something more reliable. And why not go all the way and put in the best of engine conversions for the Mini – a Honda B16a VTec.

To commemorate this, I decided to name my Mini “MAHVIN”, which is also an acronym for “Mini And Honda VTEC Integrated by Novices”.
