I'm the Head of Practice for Geotechnics in Australia and New Zealand and a Senior Principal at Coffey with over thirty years' experience in providing groundwater and geotechnical advice. I've delivered specialist advice for major infrastructure projects, iconic building developments and mining projects, and I’m particularly interested in tunnelling, underground space and coal seam gas developments.

As Head of Practice for our Geotechnical Business I particularly enjoy the interaction with our senior professional staff to develop our geotechnical capabilities and support the professional growth of our specialist staff.

I've worked on transportation tunnelling, mining and building projects across Canada, Australia and India. Recent projects I've contributed to include the Barangaroo Development at Darling Harbour in Sydney, the Entertainment Centre redevelopment in Sydney and the INPEX Gas Handling Facility in Darwin. In every case I seek to engage collaboratively with our clients and identify smarter solutions to solve the problems that arise.

The best thing about my work at Coffey is collaborating with technical specialists across our network of offices to solve tough problems for our clients. It is intensely satisfying to know that I have made a positive contribution to major projects which have enduring value to society.
