Vince’s life philosophy is that you get out what you put in. His self-motivation, determination, hard work, and ability to succeed led him to found Tungsten Structures in mid-2015, when he was 31 years old and just 10 years out of university. His primary intention for starting this business was to benefit from greater freedom and flexibility in his professional life.
Vince is inspired and influenced almost daily by the hundreds of non-fiction books in his library. The most influential has been the first, Tim Ferris’s The 4-Hour Workweek, which he read in 2008 while still in his twenties. This book has driven Vince’s vision and mission to create wealth, be that professional, personal, and financial, for himself, his team, and his customers. He has since reread the book repeatedly, and it has inspired his development and implementation of the innovative 4-Day Workweek and employee share scheme at Tungsten Structures.
Vince is on a mission to create the world’s most efficient and sustainable consulting business. He balances this mission with his passions for travel, well-being, and fitness. He has visited more than 40 countries and has been an avid CrossFitter since 2014, while in his younger years he was paid to play local club-level AFL.
In 2022, Vince moved to Salt Lake City, in the U.S. state of Utah, with his wife to support her career. From there, he remains the director of Tungsten Structures, active in the business and accountable for leading and mentoring our managing partners along with steering the direction, strategy, vision, mission, and growth of the business.

Elise holds three things near and dear in her life: precision in her projects, logic and facts that fuels her technical fire, and adventurous days slogging through rough terrain on her mountain bike.
Elise is our engineering technical manager and is driven to enhance the capacity of our team to deliver consistent, high-quality design solutions for our valued clients.
Elise's competitive nature is also perfectly suited to assisting our clients with their tender bid and value engineering design requirements.
She is the team member to consult when it comes to ensuring that things are completed to the highest of standards. As she likes to say, “There’s a right way and a wrong way to get the job done, so let’s make sure we do it the right way.”
Elise has been a proud Tungsten (n., “team member who embodies our core values”) since 2017, just three years after graduating from university.
When she isn’t keeping us all on our technical toes, you’ll find her riding all around the country and making friends with any doggos she lays eyes on.

As one of Tungsten’s managing partners, Adam still loves to get his hands dirty on-site as our projects come to life. An avid people-person, you will just as likely find Adam solving nitty-gritty construction issues in person, having a coffee while getting to know our new clients, or in the office ensuring that all members of Team Tungsten are happy and the business is running smoothly.
Adam came to engineering the long way around; having already undertaken a degree in nanotechnology, he decided that the more practical nature of engineering made this field a better fit. Graduating from university in 2012, Adam joined Tungsten in late 2015, soon after its founding, and has been helping lead the charge ever since.
When Adam isn’t on-site or reviewing some of our contemporary new designs, you’ll find him spending time with his daughter whilst feeding the many animals on his growing homestead.
If you have a question about any hobby known to man, the chances are that Adam can tell you about it. A master of beer brewing, barista extraordinaire, manager of a homestead (complete with chickens, ducks, geese, and aquaponics), smoker of meats, and self-confessed Subaru fan—there is pretty much nothing Adam can’t do. Oh, did we mention that he is a trained chef? Yep, he’s our jack of all trades, literally!
