For over twenty-five years, he has worked in the Directorate General responsible for Transport, with legislative experience in land, air, and maritime sectors.

Following the events of 11 September 2001, he worked in transport security, originally in aviation security where he was directly involved in the development and adoption of all EU legislation in that field.
