Deepcore Drilling

Chief Executive Officer

Commencing in 2004, I initially started my drilling career as a Driller’s Offsider at Stawell Gold Mine.

Since this time, I have gained various opportunities to progress my career, first as a Driller in Western Australia, then moving to Deepcore in 2010 with more strategic, leadership focus, across HSE, Training, Operations Management and now as an executive leader in my role as Chief Operating Officer.

Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to lead a range of initiatives that drive innovation. It is not just our clients, but the community who benefit from Deepcore initiatives. Some highlights in recent times have been the design and construction of a fully enclosed Acoustic Drilling enclosure, underground directional drilling in Melbourne CBD and drilling at the iconic Snowy Hydro 2.0 project.

Leading innovation safely, with a strong supportive culture is what drives me to succeed. As a whole, Deepcore Drilling have a strong leadership foundation, offering a wealth of knowledge and experience, to lead us as we go further. We don’t aim to be the biggest, but we do aim to be the best at what we do.
