What will you bring to a project

My experience across a broad range of engineering disciplines and facilities provides a ready reference of knowledge of key issues relevant to my clients’ projects.  From years of investigations, audits, and report writing I have developed skills to translate “engineering speak” into everyday English, and highlight the issues that really matter.

Outside work

Paul enjoys spending time with his family and visiting interesting places. He also likes to escape on the weekends through recreational cycling.
