I was born in Palmerston North and attended Otago University for 4 years, Epsom Teachers College for a year, and Hamilton Ontario at McMaster University for 2 years. I ran my own fitness centre in Palmerston North for 13 years, before starting my own physiotherapy business in 1996, which is still running today. I have played rugby for 30 years and have refereed for 21 years. I have 3 boys. I run a small land-holding beef farm with low-line cattle and Angus pure – made the finals for the best steak in NZ on and off for 4 years.

Our nation is facing the glaring issues of increasing crime, cost of living, and undemocratic co-governance. I believe ACT has the solutions that will change the direction of this country. I am proud to stand for the ACT Party.
