I have more than 20 years' experience in technical journalism, writing for and editing a series of high-profile publications for the international bridge engineering sector. My degree in civil engineering from Imperial College in London gives me a fundamental understanding of the technical details that are relevant to the story, and three decades of publishing experience have given me the ability to successfully communicate this information to a wide range of audiences.
My experience in the international bridge industry has brought me into contact with experts at all levels, and I continue to maintain a wide range of links to the sector across the globe.
I have researched, written and project-managed three book projects for engineering companies and organisations in the UK, the USA and Denmark.
Hardesty & Hanover - 125 years of history that moves you was commissioned by New York-based consultant Hardesty & Hanover to celebrate the company's anniversary in 2012.
The book covers the history of this specialist movable bridge consultant.
Partnership pays; project management the Oresund way was commissioned by Oresundsbro Konsortiet, the company responsible for building the 16km-long fixed link between Denmark and Sweden.
The book, which was published in 2000, examines the management skills involved in the planning, design, construction and operation of the bridge.
It was subsequently translated into Japanese and Chinese.
Cleveland Bridge - 125 years of history was commissioned by UK-based steel contractor Cleveland Bridge and published in 2002.
It covers the history of the company and its major projects including the Humber Bridge, Tsing Ma Bridge in Hong Kong, and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
