I was born in Waikari and raised in the Upper Waimak Gorge. I have a passion for all things farming and this has taken me from Canterbury arable, stud stock and dairy farms to similar experiences for 6 years in Australia and Scotland. Luckily I met a good kiwi girl, Sarah and we have settled down in Hororata. We have 3 young sons, Lachlan, Rory and Dougal. I am looking forward to supporting them in their sporting lives with the oldest starting rugby soon. Hockey, hunting and tramping are my other keen interests.
Recently I have been servicing farmers in the Selwyn/Ashburton areas for staff recruitment. I am now enjoying working for Hazlett Rural doing Rural Supplies and working with farmers in these Districts.
