Consulting Experience

2015 - 2016: Archaeologist/Cultural Heritage Advisor, Ecology and Heritage Partners
2015 : Freelance Heritage Consultant (Archaeologist & Historian)
2011 – 2015: Heritage Consultant (Archaeologist), Australian Cultural Heritage Management Pty Ltd (ACHM)
I have undertaken extensive archaeological fieldwork in the greater Adelaide area, Fleurieu Peninsula and the Pilbara region of Western Australia. This has involved archaeological survey utilising hand-held global positioning systems (GPS), site excavation, recording, mapping and test pitting. Working regularly with Traditional Owners, as well as private and public clients, requires me to bring a wide range of relevant skills to this work including archaeological and historical knowledge, cross-cultural experience, sound communication and team working skills, experience in staff and project management, research techniques and cultural heritage training. My written communication skills are developed to a very high standard and this position has required me to research and write numerous consultancy reports to a high standard, outlining the background to, process and results of the archaeological work undertaken.
