Born in Gisborne New Zealand, I travelled to Europe in 1977 and worked for a travel company, first taking tours around Europe then working in their bases in Holland, Austria and finally Italy. I moved to Australia at the end of 1980, married then worked for Hilton Hotels for the next 13 years.
In 1994 I took over the management of a 93 unit Luxury High rise on the Gold Coast (Seascape Apartments) and continued there until June 2005. I had in my last year in Australia built a 5 Star Lodge in Katikati, New Zealand (Seascape Lodge) and on my return to New Zealand I moved into the Lodge and continued its operation. Now together with my wife Tatiana we are continuing the Seascape name with a new venture Seascape Villa.
I look forward to meeting you!
Introducing Tatiana ...
Born in the Siberian City of Omsk in Russia I grew up under the old Soviet rule, times were hard but we knew nothing different as Omsk was a closed city to the West due to the concentration of military enterprises after WWII.
I have always had a love of food and my career has always been centered around food and entertaining.
After the early 1990s Omsk was opened to the western world and became a city of over 2 million people from many diverse nationalities and cultures. Many new restaurants opened and the shopping became like any European City.
I look forward to meeting many new people and perhaps enhance peoples view of Russia and it's people.
