I internalise a lot, and sometimes I can write it, while sometimes a photograph says it all. This is my way of trying to articulate how I fit into the world - or not.

I pakeke mai au i roto i te reo Māori, te ao Māori me ōna tikanga. I grew up immersed in a Māori worldview, which has contributed to the way I think and what I want to do in this life. Right now, sharing kōrero is a good fit. I enjoy it, I connect with people and places I never thought possible, and I enjoy each day - no matter how hōhā, demanding or tedious some tasks are - it’s a good life and I’m grateful to be able to share it with ya.
