Roger has been a self employed electrician in Queenstown for the last 30 years. After growing up in the bustling metropolis of Pukerau (5 minutes out of Gore), he served his apprenticeship in electrical engineering throughout the South Island including work on the Manapouri Hydro Scheme. After moving to Queenstown 30+ years ago he met his wife and local architect Gillian, who helps run NORTYQT. About 20 years ago following the encouragement of his long time friend and fellow film worker, Brett Mills, he purchased a campervan that was used as a unit vehicle on many of the pioneering films and commercials made in the region during the 90’s and 00’s. The film rental fleet has since expanded to include 3 specialist unit trucks and a wardrobe/production bus.
