Live in Hope with a wife and 3 kids. In my previously life was a advertising and illustrative photographer, gamekeeper, graphic designer, and marketing consultant. Built-up a nationwide evacuated tube solar heating company between 2003 and 2009.
Past sporting interest and achievements include competitive smallbore rifle shooting, field athletic champion (shotput), WKA kickboxer (training to turn pro, but couldn't get license due to heart condition), and association football player. Coached boxing, kickboxing and football.
Always enjoyed hunting, especially small and medium game, and fishing, especially migratory fish. Fond of seafishing, and boating. Sold my boat due to needing the start-up capitol for my optics business, but have just bought a mint 14ft Plylite runaround and Suzuki 40HP engine. Yipeeeeeeeee!!!!! I am a NZ dayskipper and open water scuba diver, though diving gives me the shits, so never continued with it after getting license.
Now distribute Gen1, CF-Supertube, Gen2+, Gen3 night vision systems, and high speed (30+hz) thermal imagers.
