Consulting Experience

After completing my Honours degree in Archaeology I worked for the then Department of Aboriginal Sites as a Field Officer at the Northern Regional Office in Derby. On leaving the Kimberley in mid-1994, I began sub-consulting for a number of local firms. Returning to university in 1995, I undertook a Graduate Diploma in Anthropology completing the course in 1996. From 1996-2000, I worked as an ethnoarchaeologist for WMC Resources. On moving to the south coast of Western Australia in mid-2000, I returned to archaeological and ethnographic consultancy. Since then I have worked extensively throughout the south and Goldfields of Western Australia. I am the principal Heritage Officer and Director of Deep Woods Surveys Pty Ltd.

My major roles have entailed the management and in many cases the undertaking of numerous Indigenous heritage surveys and detailed salvage projects in Western Australia, South Australia and Queensland. I have extensive experience in Indigenous community consultation; planning and undertaking of Indigenous heritage surveys; the salvage of artefactual material from open surface scatters; test pitting and excavation of artefactual material from rockshelter and open site deposits; and conducting significance assessment of Indigenous Aboriginal sites.
