My background started in the NZ Police where I was a Detective for 10 years and then, eventually operated my own Helicopter Company for 15 years.
Then moved offshore where I was the BU head of an aviation company based in Jakarta and Singapore. Returned to NZ with my family in 2013 where I took up my present role at CAA as an Aviation Examiner & Flight Operations Inspector – Helicopter.
Worked out of CAA in the Wellington office initially but now live back in Auckland. I am around NZ on a weekly basis flying with different operations.
