I joined BDN in November 2019 and have recently been appointed as Director of Structural Engineering.

I have a First-Class Master’s Degree in Civil and Structural Engineering from the University of Leeds and I’m also Chartered with the Institution of Civil Engineers.

In my career, I have worked on various sized schemes, ranging from simple residentials to grander design self builds, and have previously specialised in larger developments for commercial purposes, including multi storey office blocks and portal steel frame distribution centres. I also possess experience in timber and steel design and more recently in insulate concrete formwork (ICF) design. 

Digital Skills: High level user of AutoCAD and Revit. Well versed in structural design packages, including Tedds, Tekla portal designer, Tekla structural designer amongst others.

Outside of work, I currently have the enjoyment of chasing around a 2-year-old who keeps me on my toes. I play football weekly and I’m a member of Chester-le-Street Golf Club. On a weekend, you will find me in a pub or a soft play area!
