Born and raised in rural New Zealand, he trained as a teacher and spent rather too many years at the chalkface in New Zealand, Singapore and Australia. Recently he came full circle, returning to an idyllic small lifestyle block in NZ’s north. He came to poetry rather late in life and is previously unpublished.
