“I’m passionate about the future of infrastructure and how it can influence the development of cities and cultures and how they contribute to positively shaping the future of transport and precinct development.”

What do you love about what you do?

I love how infrastructure can make a genuine difference to the places where we live, work and play. I’m passionate about what we do, but it can be frustrating to see how badly it’s done in some instances, especially with billions of taxpayer or investor dollars at stake. I am committed to driving a positive change in the industry and the communities in which we work, both through what is delivered and how it is delivered.
