I have been fortunate to grow up in Devonport and I attended Belmont Primary, Belmont Intermediate and Takapuna Grammar School as a pupil. I have previously worked at Belmont Primary and Vauxhall School. I have enjoyed coaching tennis locally and overseas as well as playing competitively for many years. In the weekends and holidays you will find me camping, swimming, reading and fishing. I have a strong passion in literacy, the arts and sports.
