I am a Director of a private company in Christchurch. I became involved with the trust initially when my wife Gaye was appointed secretary and then I was later approached to become a trustee. I bring to the trust management, administration and finance skills. I have no medical skills. I have personally seen the devastating effect of head and neck cancer on the recipient and their loved ones, and am passionate about seeing further research into detection, causes and treatment so all can get a greater understanding into how to treat, and live with for a successful outcome.
