Why I’m running
I want new opportunities for the Coromandel electorate, unlocking our potential through improved infrastructure, wise management of our environment and resources, and adding value to what we produce. I believe that New Zealand's House of Representatives should truly represent New Zealand's diverse cultures, communities, regions and social demographics. With my varied work experience I know that I can be a true representative for the working people of the Coromandel in parliament.
I am a committed family man, raising four beautiful children with my wife in Tairua on the east coast of the Coromandel. Growing up in a proud local family on the Thames coast, I became progressively more involved in Politics prior to standing as Labour's Coromandel candidate in 2017. I have lived in the Coromandel most of my life, working various jobs, chef, landscaper, labourer, hospital orderly, and restauranteur, and I have grown a passion for the Coromandel, its environment, and people.
