Kia ora koutou. I am a club parent to three club swimmers, and have lived in Kapiti with my wife Mary for the last 11 years. Our children have thrived with the Raptors, gaining a huge amount of confidence as swimmers, and finding a love for competing.

I’m keen to pass this experience onto others through my involvement with the Club. I have been a committee member since 2022 and am also the Junior Surf Coordinator with the Paekākāriki Surf Lifesaving Club. In my day job I am the National Infrastructure Planning Manager at Te Whatu Ora.
