What will you bring to a project

Enthusiasm, diverse experience and an open minded, out of the box approach to engineering allow me to deliver cost effective and efficient solutions to your project. I am approachable and encourage open communication to ensure the best outcome for the client and project at all times.

Outside work

Be it camping in the Grampians, 4WDriving across the Simpson Desert or hiking to Everest Base Camp, the great outdoors is James’ idea of a great trip away. James enjoys playing squash along with go karting and even the odd game of golf a go when time permits.
