He is also past president of the Gisborne Law Society and is solicitor for a number of community organisations including Tourism Eastland.
His past experiences have shown him what the accumulation and growth of capital can mean for the Gisborne district over time and therefore sees The Sunrise Foundation as an effective way to accumulate philanthropic contributions into one charitable foundation, for the betterment of the region.
