I began my career in the industry at a very young age, I was born in 1991 into a family of Farmers, Agricultural Engineers and Land drainage contractors and learnt to drive plant equipment from a very early age. As I got older I started to do more with the family business Northants Land Drainage Ltd and eventually gained in depth knowledge of site surveying and had the opportunity to use CAD in the workplace.

I always aimed for a career that combines and applies both my mathematical and technical skills to a practical and worthwhile use. My experience of working with NLD on projects sub-contracted by large civil engineering companies has given me an incentive to pursue my career in this field. To take my career further I gained a National diploma in Construction at Moulton Collage (Northants) and then decided I needed higher education so I did a Civil Engineering Degree at the University of Northampton. I did this alongside working on the farm and NLD.

Power Plane Ltd at this time is a significant road-planing contractor with ambitions to expand and look to the future. I joined Power Plane to gain invaluable experience in this field of road planing and to be part of the companies’ expansion. I am progressing gradually and work in conjunction with our sales and coordinating team as well as assisting with site visits and inspections.

My passion in life is Rugby and currently I play for Cambridge RFC on a semi-professional contract in the National League 2. My other hobbies include Clay pigeon shooting, Golf and tug of war which I take part in on behalf of Lutterworth Young Farmers club with whom I have been a member for nine years. I am a social person who enjoys good entertainment, food and the occasional drink!
