Civil engineers have always had the opportunity of exciting careers in exciting places.
However, I would like to point out, especially to my friends and colleagues, that I have never worked as a civil engineer in South America, never been kidnapped and never been rescued by Russell Crowe and Meg Ryan.
The use of my name in the film 'Proof of Life' (NCE 1 March) must just be one of those spooky coincidences!
