A curious engineer

Welcome to my website. Here’s what I’ve been up to 🙂

Summary

I am an engineer enthusiastic about data and efficiency in managing engineering.

I believe the journey of the construction industry into the future will happen gradually and in small steps at first until a breaking point is reached. I believe in the value of incremental improvement to the workflows in the industry.

I would like to see a future where equality and freedom is attainable by all. I believe in privacy, sharing of knowledge and continuous improvement.

Expertise

I’ve been fortunate to work on exciting projects in challenging environments with a fairly even spread between industrial and infrastructure projects.

I enjoy technical challenges and learn a lot from working with diverse people.

I enjoy studying the iron triangle between cost, schedule and quality, where quality includes safety, sustainability and value.
