Thanks to my environmental engineer father, with a love for rubbish dumps in 3rd world countries, I spent most of my early life in the country of Indonesia. In the midst of this foreign culture where I grew up with Americans and spoke two languages, I discovered that I had a knack for fixing things. Actually, I had a knack for breaking things born from my pursuit to learn how things work. Needless to say, I soon found myself on the path to becoming an engineer!
After we returned to Australia, I completed high school in 2002 and went on to graduate a Mechatronic Engineer from Adelaide University four years later. Wasting no time, I snapped up a job with a defence manufacturing company where I worked for six years as a mechanical engineer.
Looking for a new challenge and a change of scenery, I approached Daniel for an opportunity to head west! After promising to teach him the fine art of fishing, he offered me a place on his team – which I gladly accepted!
When I’m not working, I spend most of my time with my wife and three little kids and tinkering with gadgets and toys (ie. fixing them when the kids break them!). I also love the outdoors and staying active and I will rarely turn down a game of basketball, tennis or golf. I enjoy soaking up new experiences and I can often be heard asking my wife “What’s one more hobby?” or “How hard could it be?”
