Occupation : Kaiako (Te Ataarangi), Educator (Nelson Provincial Museum), Information Management Librarian (Nelson City Council).    

Over the years I have been involved in several youth and community development programmes and view these programmes as an investment for all Māori. More recently I have been involved in educating the wider community in all aspects of ‘Te Ao Māori’.

Some attributes/skills to offer:

  • Kaiako - Te Reo Māori
  • Researcher/Information Librarian
  • Māori musician/ Instrument player
  • Kaikaranga
  • Archivist (whanau trust)
  • Kaiako, (Mana Kotiro wananga)
  • Member ‘Te Roopu Whakahau’
