Andrew Rusbatch

I’m born and raised here in Christchurch, product of a big Catholic family, and the friendships and connections I have built in the service of others runs strong through my veins. I’m also co-manager of the CFC Heroes Rugby team, an advisory committee member of Rainbow Networking Canterbury, and work as Operations Manager with a small internet publishing house. In my spare time I love wining and dining with friends, traveling to new countries, getting out in the outdoors, collecting vintage China, and enjoying weekend adventures in my classic MG Roadster, Madge
