Kia ora Koutou Katoa,

I was born in Hamilton. When I turned 3 my parents moved our whanau onto my grandparent’s farm at Te Rerenga. I attended Te Rerenga Primary School and Mercury Bay Area School.

After leaving the Peninsula I travelled around the world before landing back in the Waikato region, later moving to Mt Maunganui for 15 years.

Here I married Julie and we had 2 beautiful girls, Teia-Marie and Cieara. The pull of the Peninsula began to call and here we are back in paradise!

I have been teaching for a decade and find it to be the most rewarding job! This is my second year teaching at Coromandel Area School and look forward to working alongside the school community for the betterment of the school.
