I am an emerging Producer working as a Production Manager and Coordinator for several years. I have also worked as a mentee under experienced Producer Robin Scholes, where I was the intern Producer on Lee Tamahori’s film Mahana, and helped Robin develop numerous film & TV projects. In 2017 I produced popular web series Baby Mama’s Club, and short film My Brother Mitchell which has screened at the NZIFF and ImagiNATIVE.
I am passionate about bringing unique Māori stories to the screen, showing different representations of our people that don’t exist in the media.
As a member of NAW and the board, I would work hard to be an advocate and conduit for rangatahi Māori, encouraging younger storytellers to become members of NAW and participate in various development opportunities.
I hope to learn more about board governance, and would be privileged to work with and learn from expert Māori practitioners.
