Raised in the Far North, I attended school in Whangarei and New Lynn, graduating in commerce from Auckland University. With an established corporate finance career spanning Auckland to New York, we returned home and started a small business balancing theoretical finance with creating something tangible. We are now part of the vibrant Wellington hospitality industry.

Like many, my political views have evolved with time. I adore our country when we find room for the other, embrace diversity of thought, and when giving it a go is a virtue. I stand for limited government, community solutions, holding each other accountable and celebrating our achievements.
