I am of māori and Polish descent. My life has been devoted to working with people. For 13 years I was involved in the Baptist Church as a Pastor, and then I entered into Chaplaincy within the New Zealand Army for 14 years. I am a qualified Counsellor and I have experience working with people for whom life hasn’t worked out the way they would’ve liked. I am privileged to have accompanied people through their highs and lows and my passion is to help male survivors live wholesome lives, enjoy their community, and to realise their potential to shape and influence the world in which they live.
