Biography

I am a humanitarian engineer and project manager whose drive for social infrastructure aligns my passions as an engineer with my purpose to meaningfully provide Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) access for vulnerable communities.

 

This is reflected in my co-founding of Masy Consultants, an Australian social enterprise aimed at transforming community WASH behaviours across the Philippines and wider ASEAN region, one community at a time. My capabilities are also accumulated from a range of professional experiences, including Senior Project Manager at AECOM, co-founder of the ASEAN-Australian Strategic Youth Partnership, and former Sanitation Fellow of the global engineering organisation, Engineering For Change, LLC.

 

In addition to being a cat and plant dad, I am interested in volunteering, travelling throughout Asia, and can easily be engaged if you talk to me about Star Wars.

Skills & Expertise

  • Strengthening of Australia and Philippine people-to-people ties
  • Technical aptitude of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH)
  • Stakeholder engagement
  • Project management

"With the end goal of promoting increased access to water and wastewater infrastructure, I will explore how public-private partnerships can play a role in financing innovations within the sector. This will help more families, particularly those in vulnerable communities, gain access to safe and reliable clean water and sanitation services."
