Cooking teacher

I moved to the Wairarapa from Porirua around 4 years ago. I was fortunate to get a teaching position at MIS in 2016 and I really enjoy teaching here. I like working with committed, positive teachers and teaching keen students who are willing to give things a go. So, it’s really no wonder I’m loving it here because this school is overloaded with people just like that.

I live on a lifestyle block, just outside of Carterton, with my lovely wife, Claire. We really like growing our own food and fixing up our old house.

I love spending time with my 3 adult children and 2 grandchildren and I’m very proud of them. My interests include sport, cooking and most things horsey.
