Aotea College's Yr 12 Dean summarised Nathan's contribution to their school community with the following words: "Nathan is a courteous student who is very popular amongst his peers and teachers, and is always willing to go the extra mile to help out." These qualities were evident in his willingness to represent his peers as Class Captain on the Student Council, standout soccer player on the sports field, being on the Year 11 Leaders' Committee and a Peer Support Leader.

Foodstuffs were largely impressed by Nathan's strong work ethic and his confident and mature approach to life at such a young age. His academic achievements across all subjects were high and he was awarded the Academic Excellence Award for an outstanding number of total credits for NCEA Level 1.

Nathan's leadership skills and innovative streak aligned well with the Bachelor of Commerce and Administration, majoring in Commercial law and Information Systems which he graduated with in 2013 from Victoria University of Wellington.
He is currently working for Westpac in an IT role.
