I grew up in South of the South Island near the 'Catlins', another unspoiled part of New Zealand. I farmed sheep and cattle there for most of my working life.
My wife and I have been together for 39 years raising three daughters and now have seven grandchildren. We have had a home in Wanaka for nearly 20 years and moved here permanently in 2013.
We have an interest in landscaping and gardening and have just completed our third garden in Wanaka over sixteen years.
Fishing is another love. Lake Wanaka is a very productive trout fishery.
My guiding with Ridgeline Adventures seems to be a natural fit with my past farming career, being no stranger to 4WD vehicles and being able to answer most farming questions people ask.
