As a younger person I studied Civil Engineering at Canterbury University completed up to 2nd Professional.

I then realised that my passion and talent was within the practical process of Building.

From there I worked for housing company and completed my apprenticeship Christchurch working on architectural homes, light commercial, fit out and heavy commercial.

From there I moved to Australia working in high-end projects as I moved around the continent


  • High end apartments Brisbane
  • Fit out carpentry Sydney
  • Architectural homes in the Margaret River Region.
  • Heavy & light commercial, high end Apartments, Homes, House Renovations in Tasmania

Upon returning to New Zealand I chose to settle in Christchurch working with in the field of new architectural homes or extensive high end home renovations, during this period I have also built a wide range of decks and created outdoor areas that are reflective and synpathetic to the existing building.

I have developed a broad range of skills and experience within the building industry including Site Supervision and the ability to work with Clients, Architects and Engineers and manage Subcontractors. I have a very sound ability to work with and understand structures and details from plan to completion.
