ARTIST PROFILE

Photographer, visual artist, and avid learner with experience across a range of genres including porttraiture, fashion, product and documentary. My values for creative growth, nurturing relationships,
effective time management, clear communication, and attention to detail, extend to both my personal and
professional self. 
My commitments consistently lie in delivering quality results, collaborating with other creatives to further my own personal growth and understanding, and achieving new benchmarks for myself.
Recognised for fostering inclusive environments, respect for deadlines, and an insatiable curiosity that
draws from a broad variety of sources.

My personal time is mostly dedicated to my love of the arts and culture. Attending film society events,
visiting art exhibitions to experience and discuss the works with others, attending live music, trying new
culinary dishes or recipes, or just walking around the community with my camera.

With a strong passion for creative design and arts, I am eager to collaborate with creative teams and clients that also share the goal of contributing to Aotearoa’s cultural growth and renown.
Especially interested in working on projects focused on narrative or personal connections.
