During this time, as a Project Director and Project Manager, he managed a number of significant highly complex environmental, mining and infrastructure projects, leading multi-disciplinary teams from around the world.

Dave has been a keen surfer for almost 50 years although his boards have got longer in recent times. He lives on the Sunshine Coast with his wife, and on weekend spends as much time as possible at the beach soaking up the local surf scene. He cycles to keep fit and enjoys relaxing with family and friends sharing good stories, good food and good wine.
