This was where I learned to play hockey! A random question by someone at the staff club one night about making a chemistry inline hockey team prompted me to go buy a stick, a pair of inline hockey skates and the rest is history! A life long (so far) obsession with hockey was born and I haven’t looked back since.
I’m the guy hunched over in the blue uniform about to take the faceoff.
Check out the video footage from the mighty home of both the Dunedin Aces and Otago University Falcons inline hockey teams. Note the high quality gravel smooth flesh tearing surface 😛
An interview with John Thomsen who is world famous (within Dunedin Aces members) for scoring us a goal against the mighty Nelson Whalers.
My first ever car, a Honda Civic 25i. My mum nicknamed it Peewee due to the number plate (PW5990). By some miracle it was still in working order by the time I sold it despite having the bajeesus thrashed out of it on a regular basis.

Bright lights were needed when it got dark.
My first major tramping experience. Myself, Andy Helm, Maree Helm and Vanessa Green headed up the Matukituki valley towards Mt Aspring, then detoured up a ridiculously steep incline. The map showed that we were only travelling 200 m from the bottom to the top of the incline, however that was only the horisontal distance, the contour lines showed that it was an 800 m vertical climb to the top! This was before I started playing any sport whatsoever, so my fitness was almost zero. But I made it to the top where there was a spectacular view up the Matukituki valley towards Mt Aspring.
Ick, graduation, the most BORING experience ever. I was graduating for my Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry. Here’s some pics of Michelle and I at my graduation dinner.
I can’t remember who gave me the photos, but thanks to whoever it was!
I graduated in absentia for my Master of Science degree so no photos for that one sorry.
