Growing up on a mountain in the Algarve, surrounded by construction and design, I understood from an early age the importance of engineering. Observing the construction of mountain roads, coping with landslides caused by torrential rain and the rickety wooden bridges, I knew I wanted to be part of Civil Engineering.
Also having the chief architect and engineer of the original Blackfriars Bridge as part of my family tree I knew it was destined, but more importantly that I had big boots to fill!
After graduating with a master’s degree in civil and environmental engineering from the University of the West of England, Bristol, I joined a transport planning consultancy. I enjoyed all aspects of the work, especially the engineering related works, which set in motion the shift toward civil engineering and CampbellReith.
I am particularly looking forward to the prospect of seeing the contributions my work will have on the realisation of developments, intertwining environmentally friendly solutions into a number of projects and developing my engineering career.
Outside of engineering
In the past you would have always caught me on the waves, but sadly the River Thames is proving slightly difficult to surf (not that I’ve tried!). Therefore, these day you’ll mainly see me on either a run, playing paddle tennis or cooking up my favourite meals.
