After primary school, he attended Rongotai College where he was a school prefect and then went to Victoria University to study pure science and worked for Shell-BP Todd for two years but found it boring and turned to teaching in 1958. His school of choice was his old school, Rongotai College, where he taught mathematics, general science and chemistry. He was well liked as a teacher and later became deputy principal and acting principal until 1995.
In 1997, he joined the staff at Wellington College where he coached the college’s first XV and taught there until 2004 when tired of commuting from Lower Hutt where he lived, took a teaching job at St. Bernard’s College in Lower Hutt teaching the same subjects that he loved and coaching their first XV also.
