Q - How long have you worked for Go Orange?
Since November 2017

Q - Why did you choose to live and work in Queenstown?  
Shifted back closer to home before I was "stuck" in Wellington for good.  Great city, just missed Central Otago.  Queenstown for the lifestyle.

Q - Tell us the best part of your job. 
The people I work with.

Q - What has been the most memorable moment while you have been with Go Orange? 
Haha....a few moments cross my mind.. I can't decide on just one in particular.

Q - What is your favourite Go Orange experience and why? 
Tough choice. They are all different and good for their own reasons. Perhaps Rafting as it’s more physical. Am keen to try kayaking next season.

Q - What do you do in your down time? 
When I’m not raising my one year old son or doing house admin, enjoy hiking, running, fishing, and hunting.

Q - If you didn’t work here, what would you do? 
Hasn’t crossed my mind. I’ve always wanted to own my own business.

Q - Tell us, what was life before Go Orange? 
I worked for Magic Memories here in Queenstown. I liked my work colleagues, heard Go Orange was cooler.

Q - If you could travel anywhere in the world where would it be? 
Have seen a number of places in my time, would like to go somewhere new, perhaps Canada – in the Summer.

Q - What has been one of your biggest life achievements?
Growing up in small town New Zealand I have enjoyed being able to travel. Have lived in Edinburgh for a couple of years, seen most of Europe, travelled around India, Australia, Pacific Islands, USA.

Q - Tell us one interesting fact about yourself?
I can play the guitar. I learnt when I was 10 when there was no Youtube and before Google even existed!

Q - What is your favourite feature on the brand new Milford Haven?
It's all amazing! The top deck is a great spot to hang out on a warm sunny day to take in the scenery. Beer on tap is a close second.

Q - What is one thing you suggest for people to do while visiting Queenstown?
Go Orange Jet Boating and Rafting of course.
