Senior Transport Engineer
I joined Civic in the Leeds office in 2020, and produce Transport Assessments and Travel Plan plans for new developments for the planning process, as well as feeding into design decisions. My focus is sustainable travel, low car development, and helping to realise the health and environmental benefits that come with reducing car dominance. Before joining Civic I was at Fore Consulting for 6 years. My focus there 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.
