Tena koutou katoa,

I sat my first ticket in fine wool in Kurow in 2007 with Kerri Capehill and Robin Murry and by 2009 had completed a certificate in Wool Technology. I spent 9 years on the road in NZ Wool Industry as a Wool Handler then came home due to health problems and have spent the last 8 years working with the homeless and running a Charitable Trust to which there have been many challenges trying to get funded.

Due to the need to have money to carry out our Charitable Trust works I have returned to the industry and decided to take up my classing learning again. I am actually working toward a National Treaty o Waitangi Redress Settlement Hui and part of that claim will be to hopefully bring hundreds of thousands more sheep into the top of the South as part of our plans to fund Indigenous Governance which I feel is much needed, and we plan to hopefully do a political tour starting in January.

Other than that I am currently working on Tribunal Claims and Civil Law suites to help fund our Political aspirations. We hope the outcome for extending our wool industry will be one of great victory and invite all who are interested to hear what the future brings for an increase in sheep for the top of the South to contact me for details of updates on our public speaking events we will be holding around New Zealand over the next 2 years leading up to the next General Elections.
