I was born in England and moved to NZ in 2013 to live with my partner. I have been a carpenter all my life and have worked and lived in the mountains of Canada and France, as well as Vancouver, Paris, London and now Auckland. I studied sustainable architecture at the Centre for Alternative Technology in the UK.

Upon moving here I recognised serious issues around the standard of accommodation, and I am making it my life’s work to change this.

Everyone should have excellent air quality while being comfortably warm in their homes year round, without having to worry about expensive energy bills.
