Employment History

Various positions in New Zealand

• Manager of Shortbread Cottage hostel

• CoreGroup – Pipeline refurbishment technician

• Hospitality/catering

• Other positions around New Zealand plus some time spent in Japan

The reason I moved to New Zealand was because I made contact with a New Zealand citizen when I was working in Africa who wanted me to take on a project to subdivide and sell off his land. He wanted me to plan, organise and oversee the construction of irrigation and roads along with the installation of utilities such as water, electric and gas supplies so that the plots were ready to build on before being sold. Unfortunately the project was postponed indefinitely due to unforeseen circumstances.
