I started to work in the painting and decorating industry in 1990 and was accepted to start the apprenticeship in 1991 with NZ Property Care Ltd. The company did plastering, wall papering, roof painting and spray painting on commercial and residential property.

I finished the apprenticeship in 1996. I went to become self-employed in 1998. In the year 2000, I completed and became a Qualified Computer Technician. I was working on the computer part-time for a few years.

I have worked in one of the Resene stores for nearly a year part-time then in 2009 I joined the NZ Police force. After 10 years of policing in South Auckland, I wanted a lifestyle change and have a bit of flexibility in my life again so I returned to my trade since November 2019.
