Well over 20 years ago, I gazed out of the aeroplane window with excitement and apprehension as we landed in Auckland from across the world. My wife Sue, and our three children, Sally-Ann, Jeremy and Megan, were around me and we all wondered what the future would hold in our new home.

The intervening years have been rich and varied, all our children are married, and our eldest Sally-Ann has an eight month old, beautiful, bouncing boy, and she and her husband live in Waiuku. Our son and his wife live in Panmure, and our youngest daughter and her husband are setting off to Singapore to live and work there. Sue and I and our two fox terriers Molly and Nala live in the heart of Howick village, and we have lived in Howick and Bucklands Beach for the past 20+ years.

I originally trained as an industrial chemist and have had a very rewarding career in management of printing, print supply and logistics companies over the past few decades. Prior to that I worked in production and finance for Unilever, a great training ground.

Everything I learnt in business underlined for me the value of people and relationships, this has been my clear focus all along. I thoroughly enjoy getting results, but I am aware that results only come from working with people, caring for others, as well as looking after them, and identifying and meeting their needs.

In addition to work, I have always had a strong service focus in my life. From leading a youth group in my early days, to being a member of Rotary, a volunteer with Sue at the SPCA, and a supporter, volunteer and mentor for a youth and family community trust in Howick, I have enjoyed, giving of my time, working with people and trying to make a positive difference in my community.

I am very excited to be a part of Driving Miss Daisy and the opportunity this offers to combine my work skills with my love of people, relationships and providing a supportive caring environment.

Driving Miss Daisy is a wonderful, personalised companion driving service that is focused on assisting people of all ages. Although we love helping the elderly and people with disabilities, our aim is to empower and assist all those who are unable to drive themselves, for whatever reason.  We are able to drive you, your parents or your children to medical appointments, social activities, hairdressers, shopping, church, the airport, or in fact wherever you wish. We are also very happy to transport your pets to the vet, kennels/cattery or to their beauty parlour.

I look forward to hearing from you and discussing your travel requirements with you. There is nothing that we cannot do to make your life easier and we so look forward to building a meaningful and enduring relationship with you and your family.
