Background & Qualifications

I first worked as a fisheries observer in the Falklands between 1995 and 1997. I moved to the Department of Mineral Resources where I worked developing data-base systems for the management of the Offshore Oil Exploration and Onshore Mineral Exploration. In 2006-2007 I studied Geographic Information Science at the University of Redlands developing skills in GIS. I returned to observing in 2008, and transferred to the Data Analyst job as cover for another member of staff on sabbatical in 2013. I was made permanent in the position in 2016.
