Born and bred in Rotorua, travelling back to Opotiki almost every weekend with occasional fishing trips to Tauranga- its safe to say I'm a bay of plenty kid through and through. I have 10+ years in community service within the rohe of Waiariki, and am now honoured to be working within the whenua of Ngāti Whātua. I'm one of the co-ordinators for our kai sovereignty kaupapa here at hāpai.
Mauri ora ki a tatou katoa.
