I have 2 young daughters, Maddie and Anna, who keep me busy on the weekends. When I can I enjoy getting outdoors on a bike and going for a ride in the Port Hills. I run the local .Net User Group and I am also currently chair of the Canterbury Tech Cluster. I’m passionate about supporting the growth and evolution of the Christchurch tech community and helping people to play a part in it.
