Nō Kōtirana ōku tīpuna, nō te motutere Islay rātou. Ko Clan MacDonald tōku iwi, ko Clan MacIan tōku hapū. I tae mai ki Aotearoa ōku mātua i 1972, nō reira ko Tāmaki Makaurau ō mātou kāinga ināianei.
My connection with the Massive whānau began as a fledgling technician with Maidment Youth Theatre in 1996. This turned out to be a pivotal experience for me and the start of a career in the arts.
I have now amassed over 20 years experience in arts management including producing, touring, funding advisory, business development and strategy, and am currently the Arts and Culture Operational Strategy Advisor at Auckland Council.
I am honoured to to be able to give back to this community and to support the ongoing development of the Massive kaupapa. I am excited to think that tomorrow's arts leaders may be getting their first taste of theatre at a Massive workshop, just as I once did.
