Well it's a fair effort to find my website but now you're here have a look around. I'm a software engineer who specifically writes code for the LAMP enviroment. You can find me at airshows or loitering in someones hangar talking about aviation. During the week I'm a civvie, on the weekends I'm playing soldier. Life is my art!

Super Saturday: Get vaccinated

Aotearoa — we all have a role to play in getting more people vaccinated. That is why we are pulling out all the stops on Super Saturday 16 October and we need your help.


Reservists are also known as weekend warriors. Taking time away from family once a month we train 20 days a year. I’m a driver but currently in an admin position managing soldiers in my platoon.


It’s getting harder to keep current but flying has always been a big part of my life. There’s nothing like going on holiday and getting to fly yourself.
