My name is Owen and I am a retired cabinet maker.
I first came to NZ from the UK in 1974 and moved to Mangawhai about 3 years ago.
Before retiring I spent 20 years working for a Superyacht company,over that period I was to wear 3 different hats.
Primarily I was a cabinet maker specializing in Veneer work but I also did 7 years in the interior design office using various CAD programs.
Outside of my work life I am a keen ballroom dancer and also learning to play Guitar.
I have been fortunate enough to be able to teach apprentices in my past which was rewarding.
I look forward to meeting other people and maybe learning some new skills along the way at The Mangawhai shed
