I was born in Auckland and raised in Melbourne, before returning to New Zealand to make the land of my birth my home. I have been married to Lorraine for over thirty years, have two lovely step-daughters, two great sons-in-law and a wonderful tribe of grandchildren.
My interests include spending time with Lorraine and my family, sharing life in community with some very precious friends, enjoying weekly breakfasts with a great bunch of mates, sports, travel, reading and beach holidays.
Throughout my career I have had various roles in customer service, staff training and management. For 20 years I was engaged in pastoral leadership which brought me alongside people as a mentor, advisor, encourager and supporter during some of the most defining moments in their lives. This and a wealth of various personal experiences have prepared me well for my coaching role.
I have been a life and workplace coach for over three years and I love helping people find their way to a significant life. I am a member of the UK based Association for Coaching and an associate member of the Career Development Association of New Zealand (CDANZ). I follow the professional Code of Ethics for both these organisations.
