I am a management and technology consultant serving the energy industry in Australia. I qualified with a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering in 1981 and a Graduate Diploma in Business Management in 1992.

My skills and capabilites are in the areas of Project management, Business systems analysis, and Information Technology Management and Strategy.


I established a consulting practice, Thermodyne Technologies, in 1997 based on extensive engineering and management experience gained over nearly 15 years in the electricity industry. For more information, please visit

My consulting roles in the last thirteen years have been quite diverse, including various asset management, IT and project management assignments, across a range of industries including oil and gas, water and electricity.

For several years now, I have been working with universities and the electricity industry in Queensland to address the skills shortage. This work has culminated in a collaborative venture between three universities to develop and deliver a Masters Program in Power Generation. For more information please visit the web site of the Power Generations Skills Development Program.

After seeing the program commence, I remain involved in the development and delivery of a number of the courses on behalf of the universities. One of the core courses, Introduction To Power Plant, was developed and is now facilitated by me under contract with QUT.

In 2007, I managed the introduction of an Alcohol and Other Drugs management framework in the electricity industry in Queensland, and in 2008 I consulted to the Queensland Government Department of Mines and Energy on a range of issues.

I am currently implementing a business management system for a rapidly growing electrical contracting company, and setting up asset management systems in a large energy company.
