“I enjoy driving around Sydney and seeing projects I have worked on take shape and become part of the history and fabric of this great city we live in.”

One such project was the Royal North Shore Hospital, which I was privileged to work on when I first arrived in Australia. At the opening I was fortunate enough to meet some of the people who benefited from what we created – which really adds meaning to our work.

My approach to starting a project, is to see it as a giant puzzle. Slowly putting all the pieces together, developing the final solution until everything fits. Luckily we don’t have many spare pieces left over!

When I am not at work or thinking about work, I like to keep busy mountain biking, doing F45 and playing field hockey (which I recently started again after a 10-year break).
