I started SMART in 2006 and have been helping people since then with home loans and to plan for those unforeseeable life events through personal insurance. With years of experience in the industry, I have the knowledge of what is required to help clients with their insurance, home and business loans.
I was born in Auckland and grew up in Mt Albert. I went to Avondale College and Auckland University. At the tender age of 20, I started working for a major bank, and remained there for 11 years. I worked in many different areas of the bank, moving up the ranks from a Customer Services Officer in a branch through to business/commercial banking.
I’ve played cricket all my life – born with a cricket bat in my hands and played as a wicketkeeper/batsman. All through my teens and 20’s cricket was my life – then I meet my wife, Sangita! I still play the odd game to fill in, and I love it.
I love all sports and I’m very passionate about rugby and rugby league and am an avid Blues, All Blacks, Warriors and Brisbane Broncos supporter. I also enjoy going out for to play the odd round of golf, when I get the opportunity strikes.
I have completed the National Certificate in Financial Services Level 5, and regularly keep myself up to date with attendances to conferences, training and development days so that I have the knowledge and skills to be able to help advise my clients.
I am a member of Newpark Financial Services, New Zealand Mortgage Advisers and Financial Advice New Zealand.
