DISTRICT TEAM - NELSON MARLBOROUGH DISTRICT WESTLAND
I grew up in rural communities and from an early age learnt the importance of forming good relationships with people and participating in community activities.
Work life started with 20 years service in the Royal New Zealand Air Force, now working for Airbus NZ on aircraft gas turbine engines. My wife, Morea and son, Robert are my most important supporters.
Morea and I are pipe band drummers and Robert is a piper, which takes a lot of time and keeps us in touch with the the community, but when we get to play together its a great feeling.
