Greatest professional achievement?

Managing the contracts and operations to provide materials testing support for the construction of a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) precinct on Curtis Island, Queensland Australia was a very fulfilling undertaking and led to the opportunity to take that experience and apply it to similar projects in the United States.

How is it making a difference?

Cardno’s involvement in these projects created more than 70 new jobs at peak and generated revenue in excess of AU$20M.

What is your technical expertise?

My technical expertise within the construction materials testing industry is in soil and concrete testing in both the field and laboratory environments, as well as forensic non-destructive testing of concrete.

What makes you tick?

I like to solve problems. Finding innovative ways to tackle issues when clients don’t have a way forward gives me a great deal of satisfaction.

Why Cardno?

The people that I work with are a group of like-minded individuals who take pleasure in each other’s triumphs and are always happy to help each other succeed; this is just one of the things that makes Cardno a great company to be working at.

What do you do to relax?

I spend time with my family and I go to the gym.
