I have been an Engineer,
I am a teacher,
I remain a father.
I come from a line of Mackay’s that tie me to the north of Scotland;
my life was run alongside the romance of the river Thames
and my passion and youth was inspired by the Brecon Beacons
but my heart now stands by the people and land of Aotearoa.
Who I am is the possibility of love and the greatness
and that is who I am.
