For Your Eyes Only
WHO IS DEAN
Born and raised in a rural community of the South Island of New Zealand Dean developed his
practical nature from the land. Appreciating the dependence of man upon "nature."
A love of hunting is where Dean learnt respect for life and developed his ability to study animals
(of both the 4 legged and 2 legged varieties). Being at the top of the food chain comes with great responsibility

there is one thing Dean learnt in life it is that it is easier to learn by other people's mistakes. So he has
continued to make education a priority in life. From a national certificate in security, to a B.Sc. majoring in
religion, to completing a property investor mentoring program, to several online business courses.
Being a husband and father have combined to complete the picture of who Dean McNamara is.
