About Rupert Watson
I’ve lived in Featherston since 2007 and split my time between Wellington, the Wairarapa and Gisborne.
I have a diverse background in education, international affairs and local government. A major mid-life change saw me working in health and wellness, after some years in communications with Wellington City Council. For a while I ran a parallel course as a masseur, mayoral speech-writer and emerging Feldenkrais practitioner.
I’ve been working with staff and MPs at Parliament since 1998 and thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to contribute literally and even-handedly to the health of our democracy.
