Job Title: 3D CAD Draftsman


My role at Tri-Point Rigging Services is…

Creating 3D Renders and Technical Drawings of Truss, Rigging, Scaffolding and Staging Systems.

When I was a kid I wanted to be…

I didn’t have big dreams when I was a kid but in the 90s I came across a video tape of a futuristic looking drawing program that could produce 3D images from green lines at the local library. It looked so cool I had to give it a shot.

The best advice I have ever been given is…

Don’t make decisions without eating first.

People often describe me as…

Well-read and really obnoxious about it.

My favourite movie of all time is…

Probably the Grand Budapest Hotel, or maybe Blade Runner 1982.

My favourite artist/band of all time is…

The Memphis Group, they invented the 80s.

Three people I wish I could invite to dinner are…

William Shatner as Captain Kirk, Richard Dean Anderson as Macgyver and Ridly Scott. 

If I was an animal I would be a…

My wife says I would be a cat, read into that what you will.

Most people don’t know that I…

I write a lot and I make a pretty mean calzone.

The three things I can’t live without are…

My wife, my whiteboard and the internet.

The strangest thing to happen on one of my projects…

I did some structural work on the elevator cores for Sydney Uni. A crane collapsed and fell right on top of our formwork! Luckily no one was around when it fell but there is a nice picture somewhere of a crane sticking though something I designed.

The worst thing to happen on one of my projects was…

I guess it was the time I was working in a team producing 20 tonnes of steel for a structural platform on an oil rig. It needed to be helicoptered in from shore. The steel didn’t meet their requirements so they dumped the entire load into the sea. Eek! They said it was cheaper to remake it than to helicopter it back… I would love to see there calculation on that one.
