Prior to this, I spent 26 years in the New Zealand Army in a wide range of roles and command appointments, while commuting from our family home in Gataivai Village on the beautiful island of Savai’i in Samoa.
I am married to Lina and have two children, Keira and Levi who have travelled from Samoa to attend St Peter’s College while boarding at Rosmini House.
My time in the military has taught me a lot about teamwork, leadership and the many other factors that contribute to high performance. I look forward to the challenge of applying these in a hostel environment so that our boarders can be the best versions of themselves possible.
I have a keen interest in all sports, trail running, all aspects of health and fitness, and I look forward to getting out and exploring the Hokonui hills and Catlins areas when I get the chance.
