Here at Country Kids I have a number of roles.  I support our manager in finance and HR and enjoy my property management role.  I am also employed as our cleaner and caretaker.  Occasionally I help out as a teacher aide. Whether it is being in the playground, reading books or picking produce from the garden.  I enjoy seeing our children grow in confidence and ability.

I was born and have lived all my life in Upper Moutere in a farming family – firstly growing tobacco, then raspberries along with sheep and cattle. After spending 15 years as a shearing contractor I settled back on the family farm along with my wife Anne.  We have been blessed with three wonderful children.

I have a deep passion for Country Kids with a strong philosophical view that it takes a village to raise a child.  I am deeply committed to the value of growing resilience and wellbeing in our children along with a deep desire for conservation and sustainability.
