Alfred was raised in Te Atatū and attended the local schools of Edmonton Primary, Rangeview Intermediate and Henderson High School. He played for the local Rugby clubs and was an active member of Te Atatū St Giles Church. He trained and qualified as an electrician out west and also completed his theological degree at the Henderson campus of the Bible College of New Zealand.

Prior to entering Parliament, Alfred was a consultant in community led development and governance with expertise in New Zealand, Cook Islands and Canada. He co-pioneered several community initiatives such as the Tamaki Achievement Pathway, Healthy Village Action Zone (HVAZ) Project, Whānau ora and the Inspiring Communities Exchange Network sponsored by the Tindall Foundation.

Alfreds governance experience includes key roles on the National Anti-Violence Taskforce, Auckland District Health Board and Pacific Advisory Committee Auckland City Council and others.  He is also an Ambassador for the White Ribbon campaign.

In 2009 Alfred received the Sir Peter Blake Emerging Leader Award in recognition of his work.

In 2011 Alfred entered Parliament as a List MP for the National Party.

During the 50th Parliament term he was Deputy Chair of the Justice and Electoral Select Committee from February 2013 to February 2014.  From January 2014 to August 2014 he was Deputy Chair of the Social Services Select Committee.

In 2014 September elections, Alfred represented the National Party for the Te Atatū electorate. Although he did not win the seat he and his team ran a vibrant campaign and halved the majority of the incumbent.  Alfred returned to the 51st Parliament as a List MP based in Te Atatū.

In October 2014 he became the Chair of the Social Services Select Committee.

In December 2014 Alfred opened an office in Te Atatū and is proud to be serving the interests of the Te Atatū constituency.

"Raised, schooled and trained in Te Atatū, I had lots of challenges in my upbringing but I have always taken the positive from this. It allowed me to get a real insight into the tests people in our community face that sometimes leaves them on the wrong side of the tracks. Those insights have helped me to contribute to our team in developing strong social policy that is now delivering results for our country."
