Kia ora te whanau

I qualified as a teacher in 2000 and spent 2001 relieving at Houghton Valley and Lyall Bay before teaching at Houghton Valley from 2002. I am 54 years old, and grew up in Blenheim before moving to Wellington in 1981. Apart from two years overseas, my partner and I have lived in Newtown for thirty years. We have a 24 year old daughter, a 20 year old son, plus a cat called Pickle.

Before becoming a teacher, I was a self-employed furniture maker and before that I worked as a studio technician and engineer for Radio NZ.

I play volleyball, enjoy singing and playing the guitar, growing veges, baking, and I try to go fishing each weekend, weather permitting!

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have anything you wish to discuss.
