Celebrant since 2011

I am a registered marriage celebrant, an experienced funeral celebrant an award winning Master Of Ceremonies & was a lead support actor in Lord Of The Rings.

As well as being a celebrant, I am an award winning professional actor &played the lead support role of \'Gamling\', commander of the armies of Rohan in 2 of Peter Jacksons Lord Of The Rings trilogy of films.

In May 2018 I completed a 3000km odyssey, trampng Te Araroa trail, hiking the length of New Zealand through forests, mountains, rivers, valleys and coastlines from Cape Reinga to Stewart Island. During this I created a popular podcast series for Radio New Zealand called, The Long Way Home for Radio New Zealand.
As well as the above I am also a professional tour guide. My previous work history includes 8 yrs as a professional contemporary dancer in NZ and Australia and many years hosting talkback radio on both NewsTalkZB and RadioLIVE.
I have a love of this land and so am happy to travel to all corners of NZ and the globe if necessary, to fulfil my role as a celebrant.
