My principal place of residence is in the Puketapu-Bell Block Community Board area.

I was educated at New Plymouth Boys High School and after that spent eight years in the NZ Air Force being promoted to the rank of Sergeant. After the Air Force I worked in Local Government North Canterbury for 17 years and in 1995 moved to the New Plymouth District Council where I worked in roading and waste. I retired in December 2019.

Whilst in North Canterbury, I passed a Crew Boss course for Rural Fire and believe volunteers are needed in all areas of the community.

In 2020 I moved from New Plymouth to Bell Block, a community for all age groups and servicing a large Industrial block and an airport.

I would like to see a safer roading layout in this area especially with access to and from the State Highway. I see great potential for this community and would like to be a part of it.
