Bio

Cass MBA and Chartered Chemical Engineer with world-class due diligence experience in project development and financing in the oil, gas, and energy sectors.

I co-founded BlueTech Advisors (see bluetechadvisors.com), and have led independent technical advisor roles as project/engagement manager on the world's leading projects together exceeding US$ 30 billion capital value, representing the top 0.5 percent of global financings.

I am keen to connect with other energy investment and technology development professionals, either through BlueTech or in support of a standalone venture.
