Being an inquisitive creative with a critical eye, I am always questioning the world around me. So far in my career I have moved within and between the Design and Art industries In New Zealand. This, combined with my academic background in Pacific Studies and Design has shaped my unique interdisciplinary creative approach. As a Design Researcher I take a multidisciplinary approach sitting in the convergence of academic methodologies and indigenous knowledge, leading to a unique perspective on creative problem solving in the modern world. Encouraging community, fostering diversity and making meaningful connections with people sits at the heart of my work.
Bachelors and Masters in Design Innovation, specialising in Culture+ Context minoring in Industrial Design and Pacific Studies. 6 years experience teaching Design and Art from tertiary to primary school level. 3 years working as a freelance curator and writer.
