I have more than 40 years' experience in Arup advising within the public and private sector. My work has spanned across Australia, Asia, the Pacific and the United Kingdom and I have led resilience, security and risk teams in Melbourne, Sydney, Singapore and London, now leading the skillset globally.

My background is in structural engineering, but I also have specialist knowledge in blast engineering and building structure and façade response to blast loading. These combined skills ensure optimised and integrated security design solutions for our clients.

I have been involved in base security and counter terrorist design advice globally involving numerous foreign embassies, central banks, transport systems (road, rail, maritime and aviation) and a wide range of commercial buildings.

I am a chartered engineer in Australia, the United Kingdom and Singapore and I hold professional engineering membership in the USA.
