With a wealth of experience in WHS and railway operations to draw upon, he is well positioned to provide a diverse range of expert professional services to organisations involved in the Australasian railway industry, including railway passengers, freight and heavy haul operators, and rail infrastructure designers and constructors.

His active memberships in several railway organisations, such as the Rail Industry Safety and Standards Board, likewise keep him reliably informed in his field.

Beginning his career as a Junior Station Assistant with a major Public Transport Authority, ID7384 then progressed through a range of customer service, safety, operational, and senior executive management positions with numerous railway establishments.
