With hands on experience in the building industry since 2004, from retail right through to being on the tools, along with a science background, hospitality experience, and a strong environmental awareness, I am passionate about making our New Zealand homes perform better for us.

Throw into this mix my experience in residential property “flipping” allows me to understand the value of a homeowners possibly largest asset, and how to maximise this value whilst avoiding unintended over capitalization. 

Having lived in four countries and worked in a couple of industries I bring to the table a breadth of experience of construction methods, business ideas and people.  This experience allows me to think outside the box, take learning from successes and failures of others and work together with others to apply these to homeowner projects.

I am a firm believer in three mantras "Work Smarter, Not Harder", "Use Your Brain Not Your Brawn" and "Keep it Stupidly Simple". The result is being solution orientated with strong communication and a service focus.

My family and I are almost locals now as we have lived in New Zealand for over 16 years.  Being citizens, with two start-up businesses currently operating, we are invested in contributing to the New Zealand community, economy and environment whilst preserving those classic Kiwi good points.
