Tell us a bit about your professional background.
After completing my mechanical engineering degree at Central Queensland University, I worked as a graduate engineer with Queensland Rail. My extensive experience includes working in major projects divisions globally, including 10 years in the United Kingdom for the London Underground and Network Rail.
Here in Australia I have worked on the largest rail projects in Queensland, including the Goonyella to Abbott Point infrastructure upgrade, the Wiggins Island rail project and the Gold Coast Light Rail project in readiness for the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Why did you decide to join Inland Rail?
Being the highest profile rail project in Australia right now, this provided me the opportunity to offer my planning capability and help build a world class system on time.
What’s the most rewarding aspect of working on this project?
Teamwork and project integration. The larger the project the more complex it can be so providing visibility to the project team and the priorities will ensure we keep to the schedule.
What can the community expect to see in coming months?
We are preparing tender documentation to release to the market for the Stockinbingal to Parkes and Albury to Illabo projects. We’re also preparing for EIS public exhibition of the Illabo to Stockinbingal and Albury to Illabo projects for early 2022.
What do you like doing in your time off?
I spend a lot of time riding road bikes with friends during the week and motocross bikes on weekends. I also spend a lot of time with my family supporting the sporting activities of my two children.
