Raised in Dunedin in the Otago region of the South Island, Nathan formed Right Now roofing in Dunedin before relocating to the North Island a few years later – setting up the company in the growing town of Warkworth.

The Company continues to service the Rodney region but now services the whole Auckland area from it’s new headquarters in North Auckland.

He moved to Sydney in 2012 to open Right Now Roofing in Australia, where it has since been amalgamated into ANZ Roofing – and continues to grow as one of Sydney’s most reputable roofing contractors.

ANZ Roofing specialise in Strata and Commercial roofs, currently looking after hundreds of Court Houses and other Public buildings for NSW Government.
