In 1990, after many years as a volunteer firefighter/EMT (emergency medical technician) in the US, he arrived in New Zealand for a one-year IT contract and has never left. He joined the Life Flight team in 1991 and in 2016 completed 25 years and nearly 4000 missions aboard the Wellington-based Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
