Born & Bred New Plymouth - went to Spotswood College, then studied part-time at Polytech while working full time at IRD. I worked at IRD for 11 1/2years, 5 ½ as a Tax Inspector. Then I started at Cottam, Cave, Evetts and Fah as a manager for Evan, Neil and Ross. In March 1991 I joined Vanburwary – as a partner and had been there for 28yrs until March 2019 when I began Balanced Accounting Taranaki Ltd with Trent.
While at Vanburwray Michelle and I began investing in various forms of property and shares. I am currently a member of Taranaki Property Investors Association and have been a member since 2006.
Currently I am a keen golfer (on a single figure handicap) and I am currently Treasurer and Vice-President of Fitzroy Golf club. Prior to this I was a top local Rugby Referee and in my off season played cricket.
I am married to Michelle, with 3 Adult children and 1 teenager.
When I am not working or playing golf I am probably travelling with Michelle.
