I was born in Kaikohe to parents Frank Morrogh and Glenna Morrogh nee Barclay. I am the youngest of five sons. We moved from Kaikohe to Ahipara in 1972 and went to Ahipara Primary, Kaitaia Intermediate, and Kaitaia College. I have lived and worked here since as have my four brothers and their families. I live with my partner Jodi Fryer and we have five children. I have worked as a commercial fisherman from Ahipara since 1983, and have been running a fishing business in Ahipara with my brother since 1993. I am the president of the Ahipara Gamefishing Club and a member of Te Rarawa RFC, having been a player, coach, and committee member.
