Wecome to my little corner of the internet. I have this website in place as a personal cronical of my life and achievements. It serves as a reminisence if you like. One that I am prepared to share with those who may be interested and those whom have crossed paths and shared this exciting ride.
I love what I do and the family that I work with - THE EVOLUTION GROUP HOLDINGS. Celebrating my 12th year with the company, I am working in the Philippines out of our Manila office. Training Filipino engineers in Risk Assessment and Australian traffic management. They complete the processes that we can not fulfil in Australia. I utilise computer aided design (CAD) to provide traffic management solutions. Specialising in major projects, I have worked on; LBBJV (Clem7), BCC, Fulton Hogan (Flood Reseals), Allens Asphalt (Main Roads Profile & Reseals), Queensland Rail (Fun Runs), USM Events (Noosa Triathalons), Ergon, Energex, BMD (Bruce Highway Upgrades), Brisbane Underground Bus & Train Tunnel, Valley Fiestas, Boral & QUU Emergency Response Plans and for the Brisbane Airport Corporation & their sub contractors.
I met my now wife Melody here in Manila. We were married in December 2016 up in her home town Aringay by the family preist, Father Elmer. Learning the language and the local dialects is no mean feat. Melody and I are blessed to have a child on the way due toward the end of 2017. This will be her second to Ivan who is 13 and going to school in the province. It is great to devote time to family and not be such a workaholic.

I have always had some kind of community involvement throughout my life. Youth Affairs Council in Tassie.

I oversee a my local Neighbourhood Watch groups online assets. Boondall 18 Neighbourhood watch, www.Boondall18NHW.com, their Facebook and Twitter pages.
in January 2014 I was inducted into the Brisbane State Emergency Service, North Eastern Group. I am following the support role specialising in communications and looking to become a SAE in 2015. I was involved as a role player in the recent Brisbane Airport Corporation's 'Southern Cross Excercise'. An all services responce to an aircraft crash 300m on the mud flats north of the Brisbane Airport. There is a lot more 'adventures' to come, I'm sure, a more recent 'event' was my involvement with the G20 motorcade security. With the SES I have my First Aid and CPR accreditations along with a list of other Nationally recognised attainments. Read more ...
As a sworn Justice of the Peace (Qualified) in the State of Queensland in November 2004, I continue with the community
service theme. I have assisted
the Queensland Police Service, the Crime and Misconduct Commission, Customs
and other authorities with warrants, searches, representing minors, examinations
and served the general public with Powers of Attorney, document certification,
affidavit and statutory declarations to point out just a few of our duties.
I have travelled all over our beautiful country of Austraila. Broome to Byron. Darwin to Dover (a town south of Hobart). I have traveled internationally focusing on the Asia Pacific Region. Malysia, Singapore and Indonesia. My favourite is Ubud. Get a way from the touristy Denpasar and head up to the Bali rainforest, a beautiful tranquil place to kick back on the edge of a water fall and chill.
