Brownie joined the team at RIKLAN in April 2021 after previously working in the mining industry doing maintenance on structures for 5 years. Prior to this he was the Trainer Assessor for VET programmes for school students. He also has extensive experience in the automotive industry, specifically auto repairs. Originally from the Riverland in South Australia, Western Australia has lured him over several times before he made it his permanent residence in 2005.
When he isn’t training, he enjoys the Goldfields bush and everything it has to offer such as camping, yabbying, 4 wheel driving and prospecting! His wife Alida is also employed by Riklan as one of our Confined Space Sentries so it is a family affair.
