“always leave a place better than you found it”.

Power and Light is a privately owned and operated business based in Townsville. We work across regional Queensland as well as the rest of Australia, helping to support the local economy and creating local permanant jobs. We understand the demands placed on equipment in remote locations around Australia and how key trustworthy support is. 

I created Power and Light with a very clear goal in mind. To bring to bear my many years of “troubleshooting and project salvage” in the IT Infrastructure space and apply that to strengthening renewable infrastructure implementation.

I have always been motivated by a duty to help people and improve situations. From this, through my life, I have developed my guiding principle, “always leave a place better than you found it”.

I firmly believe that Duty is the highest motivation there is. Now I perform troubleshooting tasks in Australia and around the globe with my team.
