I am an active sportsman and really enjoy surfing, squash, swimming in the ocean and anything outdoors with my two sons.  In my spare time I also really relish road trips to the Coromandel on my motorbike escaping suburbia and finding new adventures.

I love to travel and have been to many different countries, probably my favourite was touring Russia, St Petersburg. I think I have the wanderlust travel bug and my next trip will be Canada.

I admire honesty, sincerity and integrity in others and respect people who speak their mind in an ethical forward manner with no hidden agenda.

Most important advice I could give to my children would be to travel, travel, travel and not to take life too seriously.
