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.
8+ years working in Design and Art industries. Currently working as the Design Practice Lead at The Cause Collective leading and developing a Pacific approach to Design for social innovation and growing Design capability and confidence with internal and external stakeholders. As a social innovation designer I support 12 social change initiatives in South Auckland to identify and solve systemic issues holding community back from a achieving a better future.
