I love to see my clients succeed. Even more so when myself and Cuffs have played an integral part in their success. We have built a business on delivering expert advice, in plain English, and providing real service to our clients. Outside of work my wife Robyn and I are raising 2 school aged children, Liam and Olivia.  I am an enthusiastic member of the Hokitika Volunteer Fire Brigade, carrying on a family tradition passed down through many generations on both sides of my family and also enjoy a spot of fishing/whitebaiting when I find the time.
