Bruce is a born and bred New Zealander, or Kiwi as we like to be known. On retiring from a corporate career in operational management, Bruce spent time considering how best he could begin to share his love of New Zealand with overseas visitors. Bruce has an extensive knowledge of the South Island, with a lifelong interest in history and geography. Along with this, Bruce has spent considerable time in the high country through his recreational interests in four wheel driving expeditions, tramping and skiing. He is a seasoned overseas traveller himself, having travelled extensively in Europe and the USA as well as having lived in England and Australia.
