I am very pleased to live here and be involved in the community at a number of different levels including being involved with Wine Marlborough, Destination Marlborough and Marlborough Cricket Association.

Serving on the board of Destination Marlborough is a real privilege and it has given me such an insight into the region, its people and its diverse offering. This has really rubbed off on my day job, General Manager at Wine Marlborough, the regional wine body that represents the region’s wineries and grape growers. I believe that it is important to really understand the places we live in and know a bit or a lot about what surrounds us. It’s a bit ignorant to not do so don’t you think?

In terms of interest, I am crazy about coffee, a bit obsessed with Spotify and Brian FM, love watching and playing cricket and obviously love my wines – sub regional Sauvignon Blancs really tickle my fancy. I am happy to talk about any of the above any time I can really.
