I am Managing Director and Principal Consultant of Dragonfly Consulting and a Part Time Lecturer in Acoustics and Noise Control at Leeds Beckett University. I also have the privilege of being part of a fantastic team.
I received a BSc (Hons) in Audio Technology from Salford University, and started my career working for the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy. Now with nearly 20 years' experience in acoustics I enjoy the challenge of helping to develop new and exciting projects for our clients.
Over that 20 year period, I have specialised in the environmental noise assessment of energy generation and waste management, and in environmental noise impacts and acoustic design for the hospitality and leisure industries.
I have significant experience dealing with noise issues related to planning applications and Environmental Impact Assessments. I have worked extensively as an accredited expert witness in both the planning and court systems in relation to environmental noise, architectural acoustics and occupational noise associated with noise induced hearing loss.
In my spare time, I enjoy cycling in pretty much all its forms (the muddier the better) and watching England win at rugby.
If I wasn’t an Acoustic Consultant I would pursue my love of food, maybe not as a Chef, but probably as a food critic.
