Born and raised on the North Shore, I live close to the school with my wife and two daughters who both attend Torbay School.

I am a chartered accountant (and qualified boat-builder) and bring skills of financial and commercial management to the Board. I specialise in negotiations/strategy and currently look after a variety of IT, infrastructure and change management projects. I want to use these skills to help the school achieve more with the resources they have. I enjoy being part of high performing teams that achieve their goals.

I am fully supportive of this great school and believe it is at the heart of our community and something we should all be really proud of. This was confirmed by the outstanding ERO report received this year. That said we need to continue to focus on the future and grow and develop this asset for the benefit of our current learners and their families and for the future generations who will attend this school.
