I'm a Hawkes Bay native who studied BEng and worked as a mechanical engineer for several years. I also dabbled in acting while chasing the snow between NZ and Austria in back-to-back winters. Covid brought me home, but the decision to pursue teaching kept me here.
I'm now the industrial design teacher at ASHS, and I think I have the best job in the world. I have a slight bias towards teaching how form follows function, and I believe the best way to have an influence on students is to get to know them through creating physical products. In my free time, I'm a traveler, snowboarder, field hockey coach, and player. I'm always looking for new challenges and experiences, and I'm excited to see what the future holds for me and my students.
