After completing electronics training in the RNZAF I commenced working in the IT industry and spent the next 40 years working firstly as an engineer and then as a technical support manager with various companies until my retirement.

My interest in genealogy started in my teenage years but I became fully immersed in the 1990’s. I joined the society in 2000 and soon after became a member of the Canterbury Branch committee for the next eight years. I re-joined the committee last year and was co-opted to the NZSG Board with Canterbury/Westland and deputy Technology as my responsibilities. Improving access and value-adding the use of technology through the NZSG portal is a goal along with representing the interests of members in the South Island.
