Restoration Technician / Spray Painter

I’m a Brit, and avid tea drinker, the only thing I love more than working on classic cars is my doggo.  I got fed up with Brexit negotiations so I bought myself a plane ticket to NZ. Before working at The Surgery, I worked for a private collector in the UK for 5 years focusing on full restorations of classic British cars, jaguar, Aston Martin, AC with American and Italian classics too! For a time I also worked for a company in the UK where we hand made aluminium Jaguar E-Type bonnets! I dropped in to see the team at The Surgery and got chatting about my past experience, not long after that I started work…..” My work ethic is “do it right do it once” which gelled well with the philosophy at The Surgery
