SPR Farhi joined the Army Reserves in 2007 as part of 2 Engineer Regiment based in Auckland. He was driven to join by his “passion for all things military”. He also mentioned that “in fairness, 1990s action movies were also an inspiration”.


SPR Farhi is currently a consultant at Wareham Cameron & Co and part-time lecturer at the University of Auckland and Business School. Outside of his Reserve Service and civilian work he likes to spend time with his family and cook.
