I’m running as a candidate for the Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand in Kaipara ki Mahurangi to promote its principles of ecological wisdom, social responsibility, appropriate decision-making, and non-violence.

I believe a stronger Green presence in a continued coalition Government is the best way to ensure a healthy environment, sustainable economy, & equitable society for future generations.

I was born and raised in Oratia, west Auckland. My mother was from Rotorua (Ngāti Whakaue/Ngāti Pikiao), and my father was born in Tonga. I have a large and diverse whanau of Māori, Tongan, & Fijian relatives. I live in the rural community of Ti Point while still working in Auckland City. I am the Information and Sustainability Officer at Soar Communications Group, a 100-year-old visual communications company employing 160 staff & operating in Auckland and Hamilton. I have extensive business management experience and believe that only a truly sustainable business will succeed.

There is no waste in nature, and there should be no waste in our economy or society. We need to move to sustainable economic models that support future generations. We need to think ahead and act now.
