Skills & Capabilities
I am a people focused leader who loves building high performing teams. I don't ask anything of my people that I don't already give.
I have extensive Design, Engineering, Product & Project Management experience. I create new products and manage them through to market.
As a CEO and Founder, I make hundreds of decisions every week that effect a great many people professionally and financially.
As the leader of a mining company, I have and continue to send people into dangerous places to do inherently dangerous work.
As an ex-soldier, I approach the entire world through the eyes of someone who habitually asks, "What are you looking at?" :)
I often get called when things are bad, everything is burning down (sometimes literally) and people need a leader who can plan and execute.
I'm the Co-Founder, Managing Director and CEO of Karbine Mining, an Australian based private mining company that Acquires, Develops and Operates gold and silver mines. Our specialty is medium sized mines in the Australasian region with previous exploration and operating history that can be operated at high gross margins.
I'm also the Co-Founder, Managing Director and CEO of Karbine Services, an Australian based consulting engineering company that develops revenue generating assets and infrastructure for mining and property owners. Our specialty is management of projects and developments on behalf of the asset owners to create Resilient, Sustainable and Profitable investments.
