Bio: After much heartbreak as a failed aspiring golf professional, I joined Police in 1997 where I spent the first 9 years of my career in Counties Manukau. I joined the CIB in 2000 and transferred to Christchurch in 2006 where I took up a position within the Special Tactics Group (STG). I spent 9yrs at STG learning the fine art of blowing things up (slow learner) before moving back to investigations in 2015. During my time in CIB, I have worked on a variety of squads, with a particular interest in ASA (Adult Sexual Assault) CPT (Child Protection) and Organised Crime. My current role is as the Detective Sergeant overseeing North Canterbury CIB. I am married to Sofie and have three fantastic kids. Outside of work I cart children to what feels like every sport ever invented, coach basketball and spend time hunting when I can.
