Founder and CEO

1839 is more than just a jar of honey, it's an experience! Beginning in one of our hives in New Zealand and ending in your home on the other side of of the world to help you manage your health and well being. I hope you enjoy this truly remarkable product made by our little workers.

GM Commercial Innovation

After 12 years in the manuka honey industry, I am constantly intrigued and inspired by what nature can create. We are always learning more about the amazing benefits bee products have to offer, 1839 is our platform to share that goodness.

GM Creative Direction

From knockout facts... “honey is the only food made by insects and eaten by man”... to romantic notions... working together in peace for one common cause, bees have been my inspiration over the last 8 years. Thanks Bees, for everything : )

Business Systems Manager

With a love for numbers, smart processes and working with great people, combined with a self-confessed addiction to honey, working at 1839 is a buzz (pun intended!).

FACT: A honey bee flies as fast as 25 kilometres per hour
