My principal place of residence is in the Marlborough District Council area.
I have been self-employed since I was 20. 15 years with my own building business, 15 apprentices overall and an average of six staff.
President of the Softball Association and coached senior and junior softball teams for 17 years. Very active member of Blenheim Round Table for 14 years and attained national executive position. Held an officer role every year. In 1990 organised one of the biggest Sporting events - the Ultimate Challenge - as a member of the 1990 Waitangi celebrations.
Rex Scoble and I spent two years in 1983 bringing the Sportsperson of the Year back as a top class social event. This entailed co-ordinating all the sports in Marlborough which was exciting but very challenging. Organised a syndicate to purchase the multi-million dollar vineyard for Colonial Vineyard Ltd.
Ran a very successful award winning Real Estate business (originally Colonial Real Estate then Harcourts) from 1984 till 2008.
