Meet The Team

I was born and raised in North Wales and came to study at UCLan many moons ago pursuing a degree in Geography and staying on to do my Master’s degree in Waste Management.

I’ve always had a passion for the environment and love to walk, jog and go mountain biking when I have the time and to take my two young daughters out in the fresh air whenever I can. I believe we have a duty to pass on a better, cleaner and more sustainable environment to future generations than the one we inherited ourselves.

I am a CIBSE Low Carbon Consultant and Level 5 Non-Domestic Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) Assessor and also a BREEAM Assessor. I have extensive experience as a sustainability and energy consultant in the design of new buildings and refurbishment and fit-out of existing buildings along with both strong energy auditing background and history of assisting SMEs in an environmental consultancy capacity.

I am the Project Manager and Lead Auditor so I manage the project’s performance and focus on the delivery of the energy audits, ensuring quality and consistent technical delivery of the audit for our SMEs. You may see me onsite auditing, helping to identify carbon savings and provide low cost solutions for our SMEs, or behind the scenes facilitating the smooth delivery of the MaCaW project.

Hi reader! I was born and raised in Blackburn and now live in the Ribble Valley and have a passion for the wonderful environment we have in this amazing County we live in. As a new father to a wonderful baby boy, I am passionate about reducing our carbon footprint for future generations and helping businesses is my passion.

I have worked in business support for a number of years and have a good feel for the challenges faced by businesses across Lancashire. My role in the MaCaW Project is to guide businesses through the process, ensuring the leg work is done by our team rather than you.

I will help you translate low carbon jargon into meaningful information for your business – the opportunities to maximise our work for tendering, realise savings relevant to your business and maximise marketing opportunities.

You will likely see me out and about at events and conferences and I am also available to come out to your business to discuss the project and how it could benefit your business – just get in touch using the below details.

Born in East Lancashire, but settling in Central Lancashire, I have always had a passion for the environment around us. This started whilst working as a Voluntary Park Ranger, which involved protecting and enhancing the environment. My hobbies include cycling, jogging, and walking in different terrains. Having completed a number of challenges in all three, I continue to find new adventures.

I hold a BSc in Environmental Studies a MSc in Energy and Environmental Management. Whilst working in Building Services for 15 years in a variety of roles, I gained experience on how buildings work and where energy efficiency and carbon reduction measures can be achieved. Formally, I am also a Registered Level 5 Non-Domestic Energy Assessor and currently a Registered Low Carbon Consultant.

As the MaCaW Project’s Carbon and Energy Auditor, my primary objective is the delivery of Carbon Assessment Audits to SMEs. This is conducted via a site audit visit to proactively identify opportunities for each SME to reduce their annual carbon emissions across the fields of energy, water and waste consumption as well as transport & distribution. I provide each SME with a technical report detailing how they can reduce their carbon burden alongside making realistic and achievable financial savings.

I’m North West born and bred but only moved to Lancashire in 2021 after making a career change.

I completed a Master’s in Chemistry (MChem Hons) at the University of Sheffield in 2014. After a brief spell travelling with friends, I found a role closer to home working as a Technical Support Chemist within the oil and gas industry. After several years in the position, and becoming increasingly aware of the industry’s environmental impact, I concluded it was no longer for me. I then turned my attention towards renewables, sustainability and the low-carbon future we need, which led me to MaCaW.

As MaCaW’s Business Engagement Support Officer, I carry out the data analysis and support work that’s required to produce our tailored carbon reports and enable our clients to reduce their carbon footprints.

We must all play our part to reduce carbon emissions and the environmental impact of our daily lives. The MaCaW project gives an amazing opportunity for local SMEs to achieve this and thrive in a more sustainable, not-to-mention cheaper, manner.

Away from work, I am a great fan of recreational walking and visiting local historical sites. Since moving to Lancashire I’ve discovered it has no shortage of beautiful places for both.

As Project Administrator with the MaCaW Project, my role is to keep appropriate records of our activities and communications with our client businesses to ensure we meet the regulations set by the ERDF (who fund our work). You will be hearing from me regarding the paperwork for your project.

I was born and brought up in Jaipur (Pink City of India) which is the capital of Rajasthan and was certified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. In 2019 I moved to the UK to complete my studies and I pursued a Master’s in Business Administration at UCLan.

While studying, I worked with various teams within the university as a Student Ambassador which has given me the skills required to be a Project Administrator for MaCaW. I enjoy interacting with the businesses we help. I am committed to making it a seamless experience for them. And I am passionate about making Lancashire a better, cleaner, greener place to live.

As Project Director, I oversee the management of the MaCaW Project and have final sign off on all reports and associated paperwork. As such, you are unlikely to hear from me directly during the project, but you will see my name on several documents.

I also offer research and advice to the project team and am able to directly work with any businesses on separate waste projects through the University’s Centre for Waste Management, of which I am director.

As a Chartered Waste Manager and Chartered Engineer, I have a long history working with businesses to provide bespoke solutions for a wide range of resource management issues.

I have a passion for carbon reduction and feel it is so important that businesses take a lead on this issue which is why I think the MaCaW Project is a perfect opportunity for Lancashire businesses to access expert support and funding to help save our planet.
