About Reender

Reender graduated in 2011 from the University of Auckland with a BSc in Geography and Environmental Science, followed by an MSc in Geography. He began his career in Australia, working in the oil & gas industry as a geospatial analyst.

Upon returning to New Zealand, Reender joined the New Zealand public sector, working in analytical, technical and “off the tools” GIS roles at the New Zealand Defence Force and Stats NZ. He also acted as an internal consultant and business analyst for projects relying on using geospatial data and technology to solve a problem.

Reender also spent several years volunteering for GIS in Conservation (GiC), a New Zealand based non-profit who deliver geospatial solutions for grassroots conservation groups around the country.

Reender is happiest outside, and when he’s not working, you’ll probably find him with a camera in hand, tramping, running, fishing or surfing (poorly).
