About me

I have a broad background and experience in both corporate governance and non-profit committee and trust positions. I am a current director on several corporate boards as well as a trsutee on two Boards of Trustees.

During my tenure as a board trustee I have been involved in a long process of consultation with the Ministry of Education relating to the proposed restructuring of the Christchurch education network. I have had the opportunity to meet personally with many key people, including Hekia Parata, and to gain a good insight into the current thinking and direction of the Ministry. I have also worked with several other school chairs and principals at a cluster level to look at ways to share educational resources and strategies.

I see education as a vital tool in the development of a strong and sustainable future. Through my core business of Software Development I am exposed to the exponential growth in technological advances and the evolving set of challenges that come with it. I am therefore a strong advocate of science and technology in schools from an early age.

I currently have two children at school (year three and year seven) which provides me with both the incentive and the motivation to be involved at a school governance level.
