I'm a Service Designer currently working with Oranga Tamariki.

Being able to make a difference to the lives of New Zealanders is what motivates and drives me. I'm passionate about human-centred design; I find it challenging, rewarding and energising mahi. 


Sometimes there are difficult conversations to be had, particularly in some of my more recent work at Oranga Tamariki. A big part of my role is about building relationships, advocating for community-led design, and working closely with partners to create the best possible outcome.


April 2023 - Standing alongside my project colleagues and the Minister for Children Kelvin Davis for the launch of Te Ara Mātua: a new and improved way to support whānau through early intervention to limit whānau involvement with Oranga Tamariki. Working on this iwi led project, alongside community partners and Ngāti Kahungunu is a career highlight for me. (RNZ Article)
