The stock and station industry has always appealed to me. In 1987 as a teenager, I started my career as an office junior in Greymouth before taking a position as an agent in South Canterbury, and then gradually moving North to Canterbury.
It has been an interesting ride highlighted by meeting so many characters (farmers & agents) along the way. I now reside at West Melton with Julie my wife, son Jack and daughter Grace.

I worked for several years in the export industry exporting wool, skins and animal by products.
