Michael N.

Christchurch, Canterbury, New Zealand

Welcome to my world. As a fourth generation New Zealander I would love to share with you my knowledge built up over a career that has involved farming on the shores of Lake Ellesmere (Te Waihora), university student studying both marketing and sports philosophy and motivation, as an environmental advocate working to engage with both the farming and conservation movement, as a fundraiser and in the adult education training industry working in the primary sector.

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.

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.
