Consulting Experience

I have worked in consulting since January of 2001 in both historical and Aboriginal archaeology. I have experience in both government (NSW Heritage Office and the RTA) and private firms (AMBS, AHMS) and as an independent sub-consultant.

I have written both historical and Aboriginal archaeological assessments for large and small scale study areas; preliminary assessments/due diligence for both Historical and Aboriginal sites; research designs (historical and Aboriginal) and excavation reports (Aboriginal);
� can undertake surveys in both historical and Aboriginal archaeology without supervision;
� Can undertake historical research at various sources including Lands Dept, State Library, SRNSW, RAHS, ML, National Archives; Sydney Water and Roads and Maritime Services; Local Historical Societies and Local Council Archives;
� I can digitize excavation drawings, can use ArcGIS and also MapINFO and can also use drawing programs such as Adobe Photoshop and Freehand MX;
� I can take good quality artefact photographs (both Aboriginal and historical);
I�ve done some co-directing in Aboriginal archaeology on test excavations (can provide the list on request) and had my name on a few permits as co-ex director for hist arch testing (locally significant remains only to date) (again I can provide the list on request);
I am happy to be a digger (either historical or Aboriginal sites) or supervise (Aboriginal sites) as needed and can record by context or by spit;
I can undertake stone artifact analyses and reporting and can fit them into any reporting style as needed and can bag and tag according to current requirements for Aboriginal artefacts;
� I am also happy to clean, tag and rebag artefacts from sites as needed etc;
� I am up to date with current legislative changes and requirements in NSW;
