I have grown up on the family farm since leaving the womb back in 1987. After studying music at the Christchurch Jazz school I returned to work full time on the farm in Sandy Knolls.
My interests include fishing, cricket, playing music and rugby.
I am excited to be starting a career in the stock & station industry with the Hazlett team.
Since 1991 I have been working as a livestock rep throughout the country. From a beginning in Mid Canterbury, my career has seen us work throughout both the North & South Island where we have made some great friends and really enjoyed the experience.
My wife Rachel and I have 3 great sons, Archie, Jed & Travis whom keep us both entertained & busy. As a family we enjoy camping holidays and supporting the boys skiing, cricket, rugby & soccer. Myself I’m a keen golfer and enjoy all sports.
Having grown up with rural background it was evident from a young age that in some way I would be involved in the agricultural industry.
After finishing boarding school I went on to complete a Bachelor of Commerce in Agriculture at Lincoln University. It was then, I knew that the stock and station industry was for me where. I spent 2 years working for another livestock firm as an agent before having a great opportunity to explore and live in France before returning to South Canterbury and taking up my current role.
In my spare time, I enjoy playing field hockey, boating and catching up with a few familiar faces.
I am excited to be a part of the Hazlett team and look forward to being a part of the continued growth of the company.
I joined Hazlett in 2010 and have really enjoyed being part of a growing and developing team.
I am a livestock rep concentrating mostly on dairy stock and growing our dairy business. We have a keen team of reps devoting more of their time to dairy stock and aim to increase our share of this rapidly expanding industry. We offer buying and selling of all classes of dairy stock, facilitating and monitoring dairy stock grazing and feed sales and can help moving cull dairy stock at any time.
My wife Corina and I now live in the Sefton area with our 3 busy children. Previous to this we had 18 wonderful years farming at Waiau in the Amuri basin. We have many connections in this area and are building a good client base there.
