Kia tohungia tātou, ka tohungia,
Kia kawea tātou, ka kawea.
To be moved, to experience the wonder, to be inspired, to be uplifted, to find the extraordinary in the ordinary - this is the meaning and purpose of life. And when this is shared with others, when others too are uplifted as you are, this is when we truly come alive, when life comes to fulness and we find fulfilment.
Creativity, for me, is about seeking, finding and experiencing the wonder. I am passionate about music and story (composing and performing) ideas and philosophy (writing, researching and teaching) and leading creative projects particularly with respect to indigenous arts, knowledge and culture in Aotearoa-New Zealand.
