I was born and bred in Feilding. As a former successful locksmith business owner, I understand the challenges faced by entrepreneurs. Transitioning into education, I pioneered a high school and served as deputy principal and principal/business manager in Australia. I am currently working as a dedicated school principal. My unwavering commitment to education, youth mental health, and community service is what drives my agenda of positive change. Beyond work, I find solace in the outdoors, cooking, movies, music, and golf. Supported by my loving wife Angela and inspired by my two adult daughters, I lead with a people-first perspective, striving to create a better future for the community I deeply care about.

I believe in a less is more style of politics, and want to serve the ACT party and the New Zealand people. I have a belief in less government, and have a commitment to empowering individuals to achieve. I bring insight, transparency, integrity, and the ability to connect with all people. I am determined to reduce inequities, tackle our biggest societal issues, listen more, and ensure a prosperous future for all Kiwis.
