Senior Transport Engineer
I joined Civic in the Leeds office in 2020. I moved from Fore Consulting where I had been for 6 years. My focus was implementing Travel Plans at large employment sites including Wellington Place, a large business estate in Leeds city centre and several residential developments. I like meeting the people that travel planning affects, and tailor solutions to the location, their work patterns and other needs.
I studied Civil and Environmental Engineering at University College London which finished in 2009. I then worked for RSK and Tata Steel Projects (now TSP) as an environmental consultant.
At Tata I specialised in rail projects which rekindled my love of sustainable transport, having studied a few modules at university, so I decided to leave environmental consultancy and go into transport planning, via a few years of travelling around the UK, New Zealand and Australia.
While I was away I worked mainly on environmental building or outdoor education projects, and when I returned in 2014 got the job at Fore as a transport planner. My specialism is travel planning and sustainable travel modes.
I have a lot of hobbies and interests, including rock climbing, dancing, skateboarding, cycling and yoga, but the thing that takes up most of my time is music – I am an indie gig promoter in Wakefield where I live, which I put on under the name Bodys. I’m also in a band called Mi Mye, and play synthesizer, accordion and flugelhorn.
