The Riccarton/Wigram Ward needs a Representative that commits to full community consultation and has a strong grass-roots approach in the Ward’s decision-making process. I am that person. A long-time Riccarton/Wigram resident, a holder of Master of Business Administration and a Bachelor of Science and as someone who is experienced in various professions in Christchurch and abroad, I strongly believe that I am capable to serve the public as a new member of the Riccarton/Wigram Community Board.

I am currently a member of the Christchurch Police Asian Advisory Group and I also serve as Member of the Board of Trustees at Burnside High School. At times, I volunteer at the Christchurch Citizens Advice Bureau. I am also a Professional Interpreter for NZ Police, Christchurch Courts, NZ Immigration Service, NZ Ministry of Fisheries, NZ Customs Service, NZ Department of Corrections, and both The Hillmorton and Princess Margaret Hospitals.

I am a loving husband and a proud father of two daughters. The oldest is a medical student at Otago University and the youngest is at Burnside High School. Your support will be very much appreciated.
