My Background:

I’m a zero generation New Zealander. I mean, I immigrated to New Zealand and was not born here, but I consider myself to be a New Zealander in spirit, but a European by nature. ‘You can take the man out of Europe but you can’t take the Europe out of the man’. That’s kinda what I think has happened to me. It has presented its own challenges along the way, but I think it has also somehow helped me achieve a lot in life.

I came to New Zealand in 1971 and have lived here mostly ever since, with a 18 month stay in Australia somewhere in the mix. I’ll probably always call New Zealand home. We are so lucky here to have so much within easy reach.
