Early in his career, Daniel spent a number of years travelling and working in the UK, carving out a career in development planning. The professional highlights over this period were the major venue planning projects that Daniel worked on in the lead up to the London Olympics, before returning to New Zealand and taking up a role with Auckland Council.
 
With significant experience in Auckland Council bylaws, consents, compliance and enforcement, Daniel adds great value to CKL clients and projects. Since joining the company in 2018, Daniel has focused on co-ordinating and leading the talented team of planners as Auckland planning manager, and made the progression to become an associate.
 
Daniel completed his Bachelor of Social Sciences with a major in Geography at the University of Waikato. He is an avid sports fan but these days most of his spare time is dedicated to spending time with his wife and young family.
