    Thanks.
    Please see my changes above. To be honest, I think most of it is redundant. A lot of the information you have given in the middle paragraphs would have been on your CV and your application form, and should have been covered in the interview. He should also already have your phone number and email address.
    I would stick with thanking him for his time and saying you look forward to hearing from him. That's really enough.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It doesn't look/sound good to have two consecutive sentences starting with "also".

    Add a comma after "Sunday", remove "for" before "interviewing" and it looks good to me.

    - Don't forget the surname of that person. "Dear Mr Johnson".
    - Write "Thank you very much for interviewing me on Sunday for the position of Sales Engineer".
    - You can write "skillset" as one word. That works better in the above.
