Senior Transport Engineer
I joined Civic in the Leeds office in 2020. I produce Transport Assessments, Travel Plans and Parking Studies to accompany planning applications, and work with our clients, and architects and landscape architects to influence design and ensure that sustainable transport is considered from a very early stage.
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 I joined Fore Consulting as a transport planner, where 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 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.
