I became a Celebrant during 2017 and was immediately engaged as an independent funeral celebrant by a couple of Funeral Directors, officiating funeral and memorials.

A gratifying journey of compassion with families to help celebrate a loved one, and collaboration with industry partners to help the ceremony be seamless.

Officiating weddings and vow renewals evolved by referral bookings.

Again, a rewarding opportunity to creating a couples ‘happily ever after’ dream come to actuality.

I hold the Diploma of Celebrant Studies with The Celebrant School and am a validated member of the Celebrants Association of New Zealand (VCANZ).

I have owned/operated a primary aged childcare business; led a quality and business transformation team for a logistics company in  Dubai; held a role in family dispute resolution co-ordination; and a role in youth mentoring; and authored a book called ‘Re-Kindle You, Dream-Design-Do’ about achieving your goals.

I balance life as a Life Coach, a Youth Mentor, volunteer for the Blind Low Vision New Zealand, freelance illustrate, adventure travel, and enjoy a glass of red strumming the ukulele.

Married to Claire, we have two adult children.
