I was born in Dunedin, but I have spent most of my adult life in Christchurch. I am father to five, my 4 daughters and a son have provided me with a sound grounding and ongoing sense of how youth develop the concepts that drive their worlds. I enjoy meeting new people and looking for innovative learning opportunities to enhance the learning of our tamariki. I am passionate about understanding and improving education in 21st century classrooms and balance this commitment to the workplace with family, sport and the arts.
