So from 2002 to 2016 I worked as a Chef, Bartender,Waiter, Barista, Maitre D, Security and Management.

After that 2016 I worked in sales for a direct sales company. That taught me how to take all the soft skills and knowledge I learned in hospitality.

I also worked for a publisher doing direct phone sales relating to a whole range of things.

I then moved on to help install Fibre for a sales firm which shut up so I moved on.

In 2008 I started my business studies.  However returned in 2012 to finish and continued through to 2018. Where I then decided to launch Guru Marketing Quake City NZ.
