I am 29 years young and live in the mighty hutt valley, north of wellington. I have lived in the vibrant valley all my life with the family. I am a serial socialiser who can’t say no to a couple of beers around a bbq, golf with the boys, or taking my best mate, goldie (aptly named after my favourite beer – export gold), for a walk.

REVVING RESILIENCE

Tradespeople, I think we all know the kiwi construction industry is tougher now than ever. All of us feel just how demanding and exhausting the daily grind can be. The never-ending battle with concrete, steel, timber, piping, and cable. The impending deadlines and life’s external stresses attempt to infiltrate our being. A taxing combination that easily leaves us feeling tired and burnt out we’ve all been there at some point (or still are).

A WEEK OF PAIN

Chasing Kingfish on the Spear in Winter

It is generally accepted that the kingfish in NZ largely ‘disappear’ for the winter months. They typically head to an unknown destination to fatten up and count down the days until they can make an appearance on every pinnacle and hotspot in the country during summer.
