Hailing from regional NSW, Arend Boog lived in New College from 2004-2006 while undertaking his Civil Engineering and Philosophy degrees. He left New to marry Samantha in 2007 and since then they have added Annabel (2009), Cassia (2011), Ella (2012) and Zoe (2014) to their family.
Since graduation, Arend has worked as an engineer in local Councils in NSW, Victoria and Tasmania as well as a stint as a Project Manager with RMS in Dubbo. At the same time he has been involved in various roles within churches, held several committee and executive positions, volunteered with Gideons International and commenced graduate study in theology.
On the rare occasion he finds spare time he enjoys consuming media, making coffee and playing AFL. As a passionate Western Bulldogs supporter since 1993, he therefore arrives in the eastern suburbs with nothing to prove to any local AFL fans.
With a broad skill set and wide experience, Arend arrives enthusiastic to assist Dr Peirson in establishing his vision for the next generation of New College. Passionate about the unique qualities of New College, Arend & Sam hope to emphasise the community atmosphere and Christian ethos that set New College apart.
