Where did it all start for me?

I began my building apprenticeship in Tauranga in 2005. After one year I decided to continue my apprenticeship in Hamilton with Dad’s new building company,Excelsior Residential Ltd. I finished my apprenticeship in 2010. I’m grateful that Dad encouraged me to complete my apprenticeship to a high standard.

What exciting projects have I worked on?

Since joining Excelsior, I have enjoyed working on many small to large scale projects including:

  • New residential homes
  • Additions/alterations
  • Straw bale construction
  • A home built over 3m-deep water in the lagoon of the Tahitian island Bora Bora
  • And (what many would believe to be a dream job) an office block for a brewery in Samoa.

As a builder I enjoy working on a wide range of projects. I especially enjoy building challenging, unique plans that require thinking and problem solving. I love being inspired by new ideas from plans to finishing details and am always keen to express my thoughts.

My love for details and travel...

During my spare time I enjoy making furniture out of recycled timber which helps me with my finishing skills. I love playing sports whether it be squash, cricket or getting out on the golf course. My wife and I also share a love of travel. We have travelled through Italy together and won a charity amazing race through Vietnam,Cambodia and Thailand. Recently we completed a trip which took us through Melbourne, Dubai, New York,and on to the North of Mexico where we travelled by land down to Panama.

I care about the environment

During our recent Central America trip, a highlight was doing volunteer work for a month in Guatemala. We built a school out of trash and recycled materials. This changed my perception of what we consider to be ‘waste’ on a building site. As a building company, it has become our passion to be educated about how we can reduce our impact on the planet.
