I arrived in Tokoroa early 2004 to take up employment at Kinleith Mill where I am still employed. I was Born in Southland, and raised on a farm in South Canturbury. Educated in life throughout the world during my travels.

Among my intrests is a desire to have a walkway established along the Pokiwhenuia Stream at lichfeild for people to enjoy the natural wonders of this stream and its many waterfalls and other features.
