I enjoy the watching our hard work and effort culminate in the physical completion of a job or task. Watching the first train running over the new bridge, or the building coming out of the ground gives me a great sense of satisfaction, but I also get real pleasure being able to bring the “opposing forces” that exist on any good project together to achieve a great result for the client.
I love the outdoor life that New Zealand offers, and appreciate it so much more now having lived abroad for a while. My focus are my kids and sharing their new experiences of our outdoor lifestyle including biking, hiking, and mucking in out in the vege garden.
