I currently work for the IRD as the Service leader in the Service Operations Centre and I'm also part of the Senior Leadership Team. I'm married to Rebecca (Becs) and have two young children - George and Abbey. I'm an avid Judoka at Koizumi Kwai Judo Club in Petone and have recently represented the club at the national championships. I was initiated in to Freemasonry in 2010 in to New Zealand Pacific.
Circumstances changed a few years later which lead me to join Lodge Zetland, where I am the current master, I began my mastership back in 2016 and my current term finishes in April 2020. During my time in Freemasonry I have been part of many initiatives including the yearly Freemasons Charity Clay Bird Shoot which I organise and run with WBro James Martin in Martinborough, and joined the committee for the Freemasons Fuel Card. I strongly believe in the tenets and principals held within Freemasonry and continually promote these outside of the organisation. I really enjoy the friendships and fun we have inside and outside of the fraternity.
