Like most people in town, I'm an import, originating from Stirling, Scotland. I left school at 15, got an apprenticeship, and served my time with Ford, then moved on to Mercedes before travelling around the world for some years. I finally found the beautiful Wakatipu Basin, Queenstown in 1996 and decided that this was the place to be. I started working at Queenstown Mobil, then worked under contract, before setting up myself. I joined the Automotive Solutions Group in 2005.
