I am married to Linda and between us, we have four wonderful grown-up children all living in Otago.
Immediately prior to becoming Mayor I had three jobs, being a lawyer specialising in Criminal, Family and Employment Law, a Disputes Tribunal Referee and a Trustee of Central Lakes Trust. Prior to being a lawyer, my wife and I owned a retail business in Alexandra for a short period of time and prior to that I worked in radio, primarily in Alexandra, for 12 years.
Very important to who I am today is the role I played when I first came to the region; being a solo father on the benefit with two pre-school children, followed soon thereafter by many years raising those children on one income. Those times left me always conscious of how hard life can be, both financially and in other ways for some of the people in our region.
I feel privileged to be the Mayor of this fantastic place and look forward to working closely with other Elected Members, staff and the people of Central Otago.
