As a planning and project management professional, I have assisted in delivering numerous EPCM projects, gaining substantial on-site experience in the planning of construction works, managing contractors, and handling contractual claims.
Later in my career, I transitioned into managing the planning and control function for projects across Australia and UK and have provided project management consultancy services to nationally-strategic infrastructure projects in an advisory capacity.

In 2017, having relocated to London, I joined CCi to apply my career experience to resolving construction and Insurance matters. I have since advised clients and contractors on contentious and non-contentious issues across Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, Vietnam, England, Scotland, Italy, Germany, Poland, Israel, Jordan, Doha, Oman, and Uganda.

In 2019, I returned to Australia to establish CCi’s Sydney office and strengthen our presence in the APAC region. I have since undertaken Expert appointments, advising on delay and disruption claims, and have been engaged in providing an independent report for use in proceedings in the Supreme Court of NSW. In addition, I have significant experience providing expert opinion to Insurers, Loss Adjusters, and Lawyers in relation to complex Delay in Start-up and Business Interruption Claims throughout the APAC region.
