Initial opportunities were taken in the dairy sector, and being born and bred in Hamilton there was no shortage of dairy. Whilst working as a project engineer, experience was gained within dairy, and later the brewing industry. It was with this experience gained an opportunity was presented to join a project team designing and building dairy factory East Victoria, Australia.
Further opportunities presented themselves while working in Australia, and this allowed time to be spent in the water and waste water industry on some large global water treatment projects. These projects allowed for the great OE to be undertaken.
