I am New Zealander with a keen eye for beauty and a love of adventure and fun. I care deeply about making the world a better place and try to do so in some small way every day. I'm a recovering academic who now works producing documentaries and designing processes for social change. The pulse of the city inspires me and so does the challenge of the great outdoors - climbing mountains, body surfing, hiking, river surfing etc. Adventures, both exotic and mundane, are my favourite things. I like the mystery and intrigue of new people and new places but find deepening my relationships and understanding of the people and places I already know just as enchanting. In short, I'm a happy, kind, adventurous person who loves to laugh and thrives on challenges.
