Tony has worked as an environmental consultant for 26 years, initially focusing on groundwater exploration and investigation in the mining sector, followed by site contamination assessment and soil and groundwater remediation. Tony has worked in all states of Australia and has an excellent knowledge of environmental regulations across the country. His last 16 years of work have been focused in Victoria, where Tony is appointed as an Environmental Auditor (Contaminated Land) and has been registered as a CEnvP (since 2006). Addicted to being challenged, Tony enjoys the task of raising his two energetic young daughters, as well as flying sailplanes cross-country in northeast Victoria. His longest flight so far was 163km, and longest duration 5hrs18mins, both using nothing more than natural thermal convection to stay aloft.
