To use our knowledge and experience to find ways to scale the best innovations in Development – finding big solutions to challenges like water and sanitation, land use pressure, and the lack of renewable energy.

What floats my boat outside of work

I am a keen cyclist. I also love fine dining and spend time painting and printing when I have time.  I can often be found in the great outdoors training for triathlons with my dog.
