My principal place of residence is in the Springs Ward area.

If elected I undertake to be fair, honest and a clear decision maker. My favourite saying is you have two ears, two eyes and only one mouth for a reason, to listen, to have vision and a balanced voice.

I am a 54 year old Cantabrian, married with two adult children. Born & educated in Kaiapoi, I'm a keen sportsperson having represented NZ Rugby league at junior level. I also played 90 rugby games for Mid-Canterbury including two Ranfurly shield challenges. An avid and enthusiastic golfer, and member of the Ellesmere Golf Club.

A career with PlaceMakers, spanning 25years, took me all around N.Z. 10 years in the Far North co-owning two branches were highlighted by winning the N.Z. Maori Businessman 2005 award.

Council face challenges to continue delivering services with forecasted growth across the district, I would be proud to represent the community as a Selwyn District Councilor.
