Simon works predominantly in the project management of works, as well as in the exploration of where innovative methods of acquiring high resolution data can be applied.
Simon started his career working as a geophysicist on a wide range of offshore construction projects throughout the Middle East. Work in the Arabian Gulf involved elements of operational and reporting phases of projects and provided a really useful base of experience and some unforgettable memories.
After a while working away from the UK, Simon returned home and spent the next few years working predominantly on North Sea geophysical projects and in this time gained a broader understanding of skills in well site surveys and the appraisal of geo hazards.
In 2012 Simon was offered the opportunity to go down to Bromborough from Aberdeen to provide some assistance on a project with a company named Osiris Projects, and never returned back and has lived in Conwy, North Wales ever since. From 2015 a transition from predominantly acquisition, processing and reporting of geophysical projects and into project management took place and in the last nine years, Simon’s responsibilities have predominantly been around the project management, commercial and site management of geophysical and hydrographic works.
In 2020 Simon was fortunate enough to once again get the opportunity to work with some old colleagues and friends in Ultrabeam, a company where he is able to satisfy his appetite for sharing very high resolution hydrographic and geophysical data with our customers. Simon is responsible predominantly for the management elements of projects, but also very much enjoys the frequent opportunities to be able to get out in some great site locations, using some incredibly innovative bits of kit and working with colleagues who are equally passionateabout creating and sharing great data and exploring what can be done.
