Stephen joined WGE as a Fire Project Engineer in 2010 after six years in another large Australian engineering consultancy. Stephen brings a strong mixture of fire engineering and fire services experience, which are complementary and enable confidence to being able to respond to queries and advise on all things “fire”.

Outside of work

Outside of work, Stephen enjoys listening to music (both live and recorded) and spending time with his young family. Having two young sons has led Stephen to question some fundamentals of mathematics, because apparently one plus one equals much more than two.

What will you bring to a project

I enjoy the challenges that each project offers and bring enthusiasm, experience and out-of-the-box thinking to all my projects. I have a positive outlook and enjoy developing creative solutions to achieve the best possible outcome. I try to develop a strong rapport with other project team members to encourage free exchange of ideas and improve efficiency.
