About me

Ko Pākehā ahau.

I am Pākehā, a white New Zealander, my family is English and Scottish in heritage.

I live in Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington.

My background is in the creative sector in Aotearoa. I started working backstage in performing arts in Wellington in my first year studying at university in 1990 at age 19. I have a career as a designer, organiser and educator, working across theatre, dance and events. I am currently working on research and development for projects.

In my creative practice I am best known for lighting design and I has been critically acclaimed with two Wellington theatre awards and a few more nominations. In my formative years I worked with Red Mole, Taku Rua and women's theatre such as 'Not Broadcast Quality' in Wellington. I am part of the Magdalena Aotearoa Trust and the international network The Magdalena project.

Between 2008 and 2017 I taught on the technical and management courses at Toi Whakaari: The New Zealand Drama School. During this time I was part of the New Zealand Qualifications Authority targeted review of qualifications (TRoQ) in performing arts. 

I graduated in 2018 with a Master of Public Management from Victoria University of Wellington. Through this I focused on leadership, collaboration and organisation culture, and what in performing arts in New Zealand is known and practiced, compared to what is the rhetoric in government.
