Roger Monckton grew up in Hamilton and went to University in Auckland, completing a degree in civil engineering. He worked for several years in a consultancy as a graduate engineer then for major construction companies as a project manager. More recently he has been involved as an investor/director in clean energy technologies, recycling, carbon sequestration and technology to find underground water.
Travelling overseas Rob came to experience the innate unity that can be reached between diverse groups of people - achievable when there is "authentic communication" that sees beyond race, religion, language and culture. Peace can be achieved by living in harmony with oneself, and by living sustainably within our environmental footprint.
Roger has an interest in the arts, having exhibited his bronze sculpture in a number of commercial galleries, and loves to get away from it all by tramping in NZ's great outdoors.
