What do you do?

I work with a dedicated and enthusiastic team of In-Country Programme Managers and Wellington staff in identifying suitable placements for highly skilled New Zealand volunteers, in locally based organisations, across the Pacific and Asia. This contributes to meaningful and sustainable development outcomes that help to achieve the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) and New Zealand's Foreign Policy objectives in the region.

What's your favourite thing about Wellington?

My favourite things about living in Wellington are the flat whites, cheese scones, the Garage Project Brewery and the Wellington Phoenix.

What's the best thing about working for VSA?

The best thing about VSA is the people. I’m also looking forward to spending time in the Pacific Islands in the future.

If you could be anywhere in the world on a Friday afternoon/evening, where would it be?

My favourite place to spend a Friday night is on the couch with my wife and daughter enjoying a good pizza and a glass of Central Otago Pinot whilst watching sport or a movie.
