Iwi: Ngati Whatua

No Ngāti Whātua raua ko Ngāti Mahuta ia.

He manawhenua tuturu o Tamaki Nui.

Sharon is no stranger to NAW or film and television. She trained as a camera operator at TVNZ as one of the 48 Kimihia Trainees in 1988 and worked in film, commercials, television and corporate production for 23 yrs. In that time she produced for her own company Moko Productions while doing mainstream work for a decade.

Cinematic story-telling is her first love. Sharon stands again for Ngā Aho Whakaari while in semi-retirement working for her iwi at governance level. She believes that Māori and other indigenous peoples need to tell their stories and control the narrative.
