About: I had the great fortune of moving to New Zealand in 1996 as part of a management team that helped open the Sky Tower in Auckland. What was supposed to be a one-year contract turned into over seven glorious years and I eventually obtained my Kiwi citizenship. Back in the United States since 2003, I am an avid fan of all things New Zealand and can't wait to return on a full-time basis. My wife, Mika, and our 2 kids, Liam age 9 and Mila age 8, are looking forward to meeting and connecting with everyone.
