I am a registered Professional and Chartered Engineer practicing in Rock Engineering and Engineering Geology with over 30 years experience in consulting geotechnical engineering programs in North and South America, Europe, Australia, Africa and Asia. I have experience in research and teaching, also in organizing and presenting at local and regional seminars as well as national and international conferences.

My experience comprises rock mass evaluation, rockfall hazard appraisal, rock engineering analysis and design, underground rock mass stability assessment and stabilization design, rock slope stability assessment and stabilization design, engineering geological and geotechnical field data-collection studies, and report preparation for small- and large-scale civil and mining projects. Work environments include one year of rock engineering at an underground hydroelectric pumped storage scheme in Argentina, five months project engineering in The People's Republic of China, and over twelve months of shotcrete technology transfer in the Australian mining industry.

Within the Sudbury area, I taught Engineering Geology at Laurentian University from 1989 to 1997, with all practical assignments carried out in the Sudbury Basin rock masses, and led bi-annual Geotechnical Data Collection and Analysis Seminars for the Ontario Natural Resources Safety Association based on the local rock masses. I have undertaken three Volunteer Advisor projects for CESO in South American mines. I have carried out rock mass evaluation consulting work in the Sudbury Basin and throughout the Canadian Shield and its Proterozoic rock masses, for both civil and mining clients.
