Whānau.

We are a whānau first, connected through our relationships to this whenua and through our shared vision for Aotearoa. Like the whakataukī “iti rearea kahikatoa teitei ka taea”, even though we are small, we are able to reach our highest ambitions.

Kia ora rā, I am a strategist, storyteller and advocate for tikanga led solutions for a thriving Aotearoa.
