Warrick's integrity and commitment to his family and church caused him to stand out against his peers. An all-round academic achiever at school, Warrick was awarded prizes for Engineering, Japanese, English and Mathematics. In 2007 he took part in the Australian Mathematics competition and was awarded with High Distinction. As well as being academically bright, Warrick consistently looked for ways to 'give back' to his school and consistently took opportunities to get involved with school life. In addition to his busy schedule in 2008 he was 3rd in the North Island Wrestling Championships.
Warrick's outlook also causes him to participate in community-oriented endeavours. NZI's Human Resources Business Partners, Neil Carter and Karl Armstrong chose Warrick because: 'We were impressed with the work he has done outside school to help those less fortunate in the community - a young man with great integrity.'
Awarded an Affirmative Kick-Start Scholarship by The Auckland University Faculty of Engineering in 2010, Warrick graduated with a Bachelor of Engineering in 2013. Also in 2013, Warrick began work as a Graduate Structural Engineer with Mott MacDonald in Auckland then went onto site engineer at Hawkins Construction.
In December 2016 he set up his own Building Consultancy Company called Resilire Limited.
