Career Path:
Having first served in the Royal Air Force for 7 years as a radar technician, I enrolled as a Building Surveying undergraduate at The Nottingham Trent University, graduating in the summer of 2000 with a year in practice.
Following graduation, I have worked in London, Germany and for 11 years in Brussels; gaining professional membership of the RICS in 2000. In January 2015 I became the lead for Building Surveying at the University of Reading (UoR) where I lecture Building Pathology and Commercial Surveying Practice. I am also the Placement Officer and Employability Lead for the School of The Built Environment (SBE). I retain part of my time working in practice which I achieve with my own consultancy firm Tech DD Ltd. I have generally had a wide range of surveying experience in multidisciplinary environments but have become more a specialist in 'pure' building surveying and building pathology. For 11 years I have worked almost solely in the delivery of Technical Due Diligence to International Investors making acquisitions in Belgium & Luxembourg. I have been a guest speaker for the RICS Europe and guest lectured at the UWE (Bristol) and am also the author for the Due Diligence section of the RICS Isurv website.
