Nelson - Whakatū / Tasman - Te Tai-o-Aorere
I am currently a Contractor working in the electronic monitoring field. I have been involved with various projects based in the inshore fishing fleet over the past five years. Prior to this I was part of the Observer Programme for six years and this is where my involvement in the fishing industry began. Before this I worked at Cawthron as a Senior Lab Technician. The fishing industry has captivated me on a work and personal level, and I am keen to give back, and be part of something positive. It's a tough industry no matter where you sit within it.
It’s so vast and varied and has so much to offer. The Navigator role is a positive addition to the fishing industry and its people and I’m proud to be a part of it and look forward to meeting fishers and their families. I am based in sunny Nelson and like so many other parts of NZ have a fishing industry on my doorstep. I want to see that industry thrive, and I look forward to supporting all of us within it, however I can.
