• Born in Christchurch, educated in Lower Hutt and Wellington, I have lived in Manaia and Hawera for 30 years. My wife Claire and I have raised four great children in South Taranaki. I understand the  priorities of families, work, schooling and health

• I’m an Economics graduate from Victoria Uni, with many years of high school teaching mostly in mathematics, but also economics and physics. I also worked at Fonterra Whareroa for nine years doing optical instrument calibration, data analysis and spreadsheet software. I now work online and do some relief teaching.
