OBJECTIVE

To recount the talents and expertise I have developed throughout my career and display the capabilities that this gives me to fulfil the requirements demanded of a professional in a progressive,  leading edge organisation.

CAREER SUMMARY

My direct involvement for 25 years in the surveying, mapping and related industries, latterly centred around computer based high technology software, specifically, geospatial visualisation, product creation, sales and marketing, has brought me a very high level of success.

AIM

To secure specific contracts in geospatial visualisation in Australia and overseas.

KEY SKILLS AND ACHIEVEMENTS
 
Technical skills: Successful career in Geographic Information Systems, Remote Sensing, Digital Photogrammetry and more recently, Terrain Visualisation, has empowered me with a broad range of technical skills ranging from computer programming through system management to the generation of highly-detailed, project-oriented, computer based, synthetic geographic environments (vis/sim databases)
Sales skills: Developed expertise in consultative selling in the terrain visualisation software and bureau service area, bringing large rewards to my company and myself. Motivated by success and recognition
Management skills: Possess a hands-on approach with an empathic style that engenders loyalty in my team. Enjoy leading and being part of a proficient team, but also thoroughly enjoy working alone on projects that require my specific skills
Visualisation: Have a sharp mind, an active imagination and a high IQ, which allows me to visualise actions and strategies. Able to vocalise it to others and enlist their support
Idea generation: An ideas man, especially able to ‘spark’ off raw ideas (mine or of others) with a very keen eye for detail
