About Chris

An eternal optimist, Chris is inspired by ideas that make the world a better place. Chris brings his positive energy to work by always looking for opportunities to empower others through collaborative problem solving.

Chris has a particular interest in environmental and natural resource management, he utilises his passion for contributing to policy design to reduce emissions and implement renewable energy programs within the Victorian Government. His background in physical and social sciences enables Chris to bring a balanced perspective to the analysis of complex issues.

For Chris successful project management stems from a solid foundation of shared understanding across teams and stakeholders complemented by tools and frameworks for delivery. Chris has put his project management abilities to good use in delivering results for complex government programs, as well as in a volunteer capacity to deliver youth leadership programs.

When the weather is good (and sometimes even when it isn’t) Chris can be found outdoors keeping active through cycling, hiking or scuba diving. On the off chance you find Chris indoors he will be diving into a good book or stretching his mind with a crossword.
