I am a highly experienced and accomplished environmental professional with 20+ years’ experience in the environmental industry. Over the course of my career I have worked on a very diverse range of projects in different environmental disciplines. My passion and core expertise is environmental assessment and includes the following areas: environmental impact assessment; strategic environmental assessment; stakeholder engagement; sustainable development; environmental monitoring; and, environmental due diligence and compliance auditing.

Over the past 20 years, I have been involved in several large-scale and complex environmental assessment and planning projects in the property and development, infrastructure, industrial, mining and power generation sectors. My varied project experience has afforded me the opportunity to develop excellent project management, technical leadership, report writing and report reviewing skills. Many of these projects required the coordination of multi- disciplinary engineering and environmental teams, which has given me a greater appreciation of different disciplines within the industry (e.g. marine science, air quality, ecology, hydrogeology etc.).
