I’m 7th generation Pākehā with English, Irish, Scottish and Scandinavian roots. I grew up on the edge of the Waitemata in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland in a rainbow family. I now live upon Whātaitai in Pōneke Wellington with my partner Zoe.
I’ve worked in research and community education for more than 10 years, with a focus on evaluation since 2018 across the private, public and community sector. My work spans community development, sustainability, primary industries, gender and sexuality, treaty education, public health and education. I work to magnify the impact of passionate people working for change in their communities by mapping where they are now, where they need to go and how they might get there.
