We'd love to get to know you better. Take a moment to say hi to the community in the comments.
I am one of six children. My father served in the RAF where he and my mother met. When I was a toddler, our family travelled around the world before settling back in England in the 1970s.
My family means the world to me, we are all a very close unit no matter where we all are in the world.
At an early age, the two things I wanted to be in life were to be a professional footballer and a Police Officer.
Despite early efforts, my hopes of a football career were short-lived, but 20 years later I was successfully employed by the Metropolitan Police Force in England. After 10 years of service in 2008, I transferred to New Zealand Police.
When we moved to New Zealand my wife’s two other daughters Claire and Vicky decided their destiny was to remain in England where they are to this day.
In 2011 due to family reasons, my immediate family and I returned to England for a 2-year period before returning “home” to New Zealand in 2013.
Upon our return to New Zealand in 2013 I secured employment within the Department of Corrections where I work to this day.
We live in Auckland my wife Elaine, works at Pack n Save, and my daughter Abi, a beauty consultant.
My aim in life has always been to help others that’s why for me, my employment within the Police and Department of Corrections has been great career moves making the decisions.
