Studied Mechatronics at University of Newcastle
Superhero “Jack of all trades and master of many”


Favourite part of the job

Toby gives 100 110% to everything he puts his hands to. He has a superhero ability to handle a lot of spinning plates (masterfully) and skilfully think on his feet when something doesn’t go exactly as planned.

He’ll be the first to admit that he loves being our (self-appointed) procurement guy for workshop tools & materials – must be something about receiving & opening packages as though it’s a gift. At the end of the day, every team needs a workshop guru with a superhero heart – that’s Toby to us, whether he’s solving a problem in the workshop to helping deliver lambs on a colleague’s farm (yep, Jack of all trades).

Outside of work…

Toby is our resident outdoor adventure guy. When he’s not running the workshop, you’ll likely see him paragliding, kitesurfing (& patiently trying to teach / drag one of us!) or riding an electric skateboard he built himself (skills). And, if you’re into bees, Toby knows a lot about beekeeping too (he truly is a such a beekeeper).
