Since his selection into the team Nathan has been selling Special Olympics chocolates in the community and promoting the benefits of the sporting organisation as he goes. In fact, he has been so personable in his approach that he landed a job completing stocktakes for local company Protein Store.

In addition to basketball he also trains in aquatics with Special Olympics Manawatu and is a keen triathlete and has completed several triathlons with the Manawatu Triathlon Club including Sport Manawatu’s Whanau Tri.
