I began working with Murphy Surveys in 2012 as a CAD technician and in 2013 I moved to the topographical surveys department where I worked on the development of our civil 3D template, processing workflows, reception and delivery of aerial survey data and subcontractor coordination. In early 2016 I was assigned the main data processor of UAV data. One of the things I like most about my job is the integration of difference survey methods and techniques, it makes my job a lot more interesting!

I started with Murphy Surveys Cork office in 2016. I have worked in the field and office on a variety of topo, laser scanning, MBS and setting out projects. Along the way I've had a privilege to work with bunch of great and experienced colleagues and learn from them. Another thing I particularly like about my job is the opportunity to use some of the latest technologies within our industry (both instruments and software) on a daily basis and to combine them in execution of our projects.
