In 1985, as a “wet behind the ears” 19 year old Pat began his working life as a Police officer in South Auckland New Zealand.
In those days the streets of South Auckland were typical of the “Once Were Warriors” portrayal, especially as a 19 year old Maori, trying to police his own kind.
Often abused by his peers, familiar terms like “Plastic Maori”, “Traitor” and “Potato” were often shouted at him.
Working mainly in uniform Pat spent a number of years as a dog handler before seeking refuge for more reasonable working hours and conditions by seeking promotion, finally attaining the rank of Sergeant within Prosecutions Section.
In 1997, Pat resigned from the New Zealand Police to shift to sunnier skies and entered the private investigations industry here in Australia, firstly in Brisbane and more recently in Melbourne. Nicknamed “Tracker” by his peers for never letting up he was involved in a number of high profile cases including the civil case surrounding the death of former Australian cricketer David Hookes.
At the same time, Pat was forging a very successful sporting career as a rugby union referee travelling to some of the world’s top sporting arenas as a match official.
Whilst forging his referee career, Pat chose to pursue his passion for exercise and health by becoming a Health, Wellness and Life Performance Coach in 2005. He soon became sought after by a number of large corporations as a motivational speaker because of his expertise in changing people’s lives and holding an audience.
An internationally published author, married with three beautiful children and a soon to be grandfather, in his spare time Pat sings, plays the guitar, trains dogs to be obedient and in 1991 was voted the 2nd best father of the year.
