Director/Development Manager
Certificate III & IV in Construction

I’ve been in the development, civil & construction industry for 22 years.

Shortly after I completed my carpentry apprenticeship I started my own business and relocated to Sydney to perform contract work on the Olympic village. Once the Olympics concluded I became a qualified builder and ran my own construction company for 9 years.


In 2011 I was offered a position in Brisbane to manage the civil and construction division of a development company who specialise in crowd funded property developments.


During my six years working there I managed the development process of over $50M worth of properties and became the director of the civil company. When I left the company I was managing the opportunity assessment and development management division, I became a board member and was offered shares.
