My interest in celebrancy sprang from a belief that there should be a secular alternative to religious weddings or funerals, secular celebrations of course have become more the normal way of conducting celebrations over the last 20 or so years.
I have always believed in giving back to the community and have regularly been involved in voluntary work both in the UK and in New Zealand where I have lived for the last twenty years.
I have always been in the people business as I've worked for over twenty five years in the field of Human Resources and Recruitment both in New Zealand and overseas. This career has meant that I have presented to groups of people on a regular basis and arranged countless events, as well as dealing with people in a variety of situations both pleasant and unpleasant.
Additionally I have been a part time actor and have appeared in TV shows in New Zealand and in numerous television commercials over the years, so I am well used to being in the spotlight and having to have the ability to perform in front of an audience.
My celebrancy style can be described as giving my clients what they want and I try and adopt a relaxed and informal style wherever possible.
