Kane Hart was born in Fremantle, Western Australia; however, has been lucky to call Cairns his home for the past eighteen years. Completing secondary education at Cairns State High School and a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering across both the Cairns and Townsville James Cook University Campuses, FNQ has provided Kane with endless opportunity to develop locally as a Mechanical Engineer.
Since graduating from university in 2008, Kane has worked as a Mechanical Building Services Engineer across a wide variety industry sectors including Energy, Health, Retail, Commercial and Industrial.

He has since returned to Far North Queensland where he is the Senior Mechanical Engineer and Cairns Branch Manager for McClintock Engineering Group, a specialist mechanical engineering design consultancy who provide innovative solutions for air-conditioning and ventilation systems, energy modelling and district cooling systems.
