I have recently returned to New Plymouth after several years in Auckland, to renew many friendships and to contribute to community life here.
My life experience includes officiating at funerals for over 30 years, sometimes when loss is expected, and sometimes in tragedy. I can help your family to frame memories in a way that is sensitive to the values and beliefs of your loved one. It is always an honour for me to discover what you already treasure about the person being farewelled.
My vocational background includes youth work, negotiation, non-profit leadership, and pastoral roles. This has allowed me to cross paths with many different people who all represent a unique story. As a Celebrant, I will assist you to remember and celebrate your loved family member for the gift they were to you.
I am happily married, with adult children and one granddaughter, and I enjoy spending time now with my wife dancing & singing.
