Greatest professional achievement?

Being awarded the 2017 Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) Individual Leadership in Sustainability Award, which has been a culmination and recognition of various different professional achievements in recent times.

How is it making a difference?

People are reaching out to me for advice in their career or in technical solutions, it’s enabling conversations, and sharing of knowledge and experience that might not otherwise have occurred.

What is your technical expertise?

Infrastructure sustainability, in design and construction in particular.

What makes you tick?

Knowing that my role is about something that is bigger than me. And I love challenging the status quo.

Why Cardno?

Solid technical nous and real-world on-ground experience that I’ve not seen the like of elsewhere in consulting.

What do you do to relax?

Playing classical guitar, knitting, sourdough baking, horticulture, chicken wrangling, bushwalking, imbibing single malt whisky particularly Islay varieties and generally enjoying living in country Victoria.

Any other wise words?

Don’t take things as given, always ask “why”. Keep asking questions, keep learning and keep developing.
