I studied Civil Engineering at the National University of Ireland, Galway.
I’ve spent the last 2 years working in the UK as a design engineer and working on the client side of projects.
Previous work has included structural design for ports, flood defence projects and habitat restoration projects.
I have been working towards chartership and would like to continue working towards this.
I have always enjoyed water-related aspects of engineering but I am looking forward to developing my structural and civils base further.
One very important thing I’ve learnt is that communication and good relationships are key to successful outcomes.
I do a lot of Swimming, K1 paddling and Surf Lifesaving. Since coming to new Zealand though I have been enjoying some time off these to go on long hikes and runs around the many national parks, mountain biking and general exploring.
