I was an apprentice mechanic for a while but I now work as a Mechatronics Engineer doing a range of design work for a metal works company. Also building a race car at the University of Canterbury for the second time. Built a combustion one last year and building a fully electric car this year. I'm also on my way to being a flight instructor for small fixed wing aircraft!

Exciting Shannon, all the best. Hope it goes well for you

I have just started running my own business also, I have taken over a REntal car business in Christchurch, loving it also, great to work with people who are optimistic, even excited, after 25 years working with youth, often who are in trouble with the courts.

If you need wheels to visit the lovely South Island, hit me up.
