My story begins in Ireland where I found a love of carpentry working from a young age with my father.
In 2000 I started my apprenticeship as a young enthusiastic guy who was hungry for success. I traveled all over Ireland working on a variety of different projects for a well-established Irish company.
During my time building flat roofs/decks I found I had a strong interest in waterproofing. I decided to branch out and work a sideline job with a roofing company where I had the opportunity to work with both carpentry and waterproofing together.
Upon completing my apprenticeship in 2004 I was ready for my new challenge!
I had friends in NZ who I had regular contact with. It was a no brainer! So, I packed my bags and 34hrs later I was in “The City of Sails” I bumped into a friend who introduced me to a guy that I now call “Boss”. A quick phone call and the following Monday I had a job.
The first person I met was a known legend at Asphaltech. Gerson Nunes, my mentor! Gerson helped me progress my waterproofing skills further all whilst working on multi million-dollar houses.
Asphaltech has expanded massively over the years and with that came the increased workload. After 3 years with Asphaltech I became a supervisor where I helped train new employees joining the company. When it was time for my mentor to move on and go oversees, I was promoted into his role as a Project Manager. I have been with Asphaltech now for 7 years.
Every day is a new and exciting challenge and I have been able to continue to grow within the company.
When the Boss allows me some time off, I love coaching my soccer team ‘Uni Mount Bohemian’ to Victory and I look forward to the frequent Staff BBQ and beers on a Friday Arvo.
And along with George and Joe I like to enjoy my fare share of a wee shandy.
