For much of my life I have been involved in the community, be it on Lake, Park and Domain management, Sports organization's, School and College governance or in business (Farm Tourism, Marketing and promotions).
My interests are broad, these include music, art, sport, politics and good food and wine. You can be assured of lively conversation on a wide verity of subjects.
I like to think of myself as confident and outgoing. I am proud of New Zealand and what we have to offer, I look forward to taking you on the journey that is the New Zealand story.
A Recent Review of this guide
We were especially happy to have Michael as our guide for Christchurch. We spent 2 days with him and left as good friends. As a lifetime resident, Michael has all the knowledge of the area (and NZ in general) to provide the information needed to give a thorough tour. He was completely flexible for our interests so we so what interested us. We really enjoyed Micheal's personality and friendliness. And it's apparent he's well respected in his hometown as we met several of his friends while we out.
Over the years I have studied in a variety of areas. These include sport management, marketing and I have done papers on Tourism.
All these papers were done through Massey University while working towards a Bachelor of Business Studies (Still to be completed)
For a number of years I ran a farm tourism business where environment, animals and food were the focus.
