Originally from Scotland, after spending some time in the police Service and Military, I qualified as a paramedic and adult educator. I used my skills internationally in countries such as Ghana, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Papua New Guinea.
Since being in New Zealand I have been on the Senior Manager Team of a high hazard industry, using skills in health, safety and risk.
I enjoy nothing more than simplifying complicated legislation and turning it into easy to understand processes and procedures.
Being very much people person, I enjoy getting to know people, to understand the real issues and delivering strong, practical solutions.
When not working I enjoy archery and astronomy (although very much an amateur at both) and being at home with my wife and two dogs.
