He currently has businesses in environmental soil science, whole of farm management, remediation and civil earthworks and property development in which he has trained numerous scientists in the art of commercial scientific problem-solving. He is a father of 4 and a grandfather soon to be of 4. (His family are undecided whether he is a pain in the arse all the time or only part of the time). He is proud to say he is a soil scientist (except to customs officers as he is sick and tired in having his boots checked). After over 35 years as a practising soil scientist in landscape repair, he remains passionate about the subject and the value of our profession, particularly with regard to our role in landscape repair.
