Tell us a bit about you
I am Australian, born and bred in Sydney, but lived 14 years in London. Everyone in Sydney seems to think I’m English, whereas everyone in the UK thinks I have a strong Australian accent. I’m looking forward to losing my English accent, and being embraced as an Aussie again! Now that I’m back in Sydney I am loving living by the beach.
Best thing about being an engineer?
When you look at one your finished projects and it looks simple, elegant and effortless, yet you know that it is complicated building doing many things. This is only achieved when you work with a team (design team and contractors) who are passionate about the building, and everyone comes together with the same goals, and works hard for the result. So, I would say that one of the best things about being an engineer is working with a team who are passionate about the project and produce special buildings.
