I've been the CEO of Sport Waikato since 2001. Sport Waikato is one of 14 Regional Sports Trusts (RST) in New Zealand which was established in 1986 and was the second RST to commence operation just behind Sport Otago. 

My work as CEO sees me spending a lot of time in local Waikato communities and I'm a proud “Mooloo” man with a real passion for the benefits of sport and recreation and also the power of partnerships and effective conversations.
