Year joined DMA: 2016
I consider myself to be an outcome-focused individual, with a drive for identifying practical hydraulic solutions for each project. I’ve always had a strong emphasis on being an effective communicator to all parties not only as a hydraulic consultant but also leading the DMA hydraulic team.
I have more than fifteen years’ experience in the plumbing construction industry. For seven of these years I was working as a plumber, drainer and gas fitter and for eight years I have been a hydraulic services design consultant. Over this time, I have worked on projects involving multi-story residential, commercial, retail, health and industrial buildings.
Utilising my previous on-site plumbing knowledge, I bring a practical understanding of the buildability and implementation of hydraulics into every project, ensuring an efficient, cost effective and reliable design solution is achieved for my clients.

To me, the most interesting part of any building is the basement. That’s where I believe you can find real inner beauty. Each time a service is engineered through a building, the engineer is placing their own design ‘signature’ seamlessly into the less used spaces. These signatures always tell a really interesting story to me.
