I am a qualified builder, starting an apprenticeship straight from school I worked in and around Dannevirke (Southern Hawkes Bay). I was involved in new houses, cowsheds, landscaping and renovations.
After finishing my apprenticeship I spent a year in Canada where I was employed doing concrete placing and general building. I enjoyed my time there but am happy to be back here in a more temperate climate
Brought up rurally, I enjoyed living on a farm, doing manual work and being outdoors.
I am from a dairy farming back ground in the Palmerton North region. I have enjoyed the outdoors all my life, fishing, tramping and this has made me endeavor to work outside in the trade industry. We do live in a magnificent country.
I have been in the construction industry for 8 years and enjoy the challenge of building efficiently anything that is thrown at me. I am a qualified builder and also hold a diploma in agriculture.
