I am now in my second year of teaching at Matipo Primary. I completed a Bachelor of Arts at Auckland University, majoring in Ethnomusicology and Film, Television and Media Studies before taking a couple of years off. During this time I travelled through South America, Eastern Europe, South East Asia, and I lived and worked in Edinburgh. At the end of 2012 I returned to New Zealand, and spent 2013 studying towards a Graduate Diploma in Primary Teaching. I live locally on the Peninsula with my fiancé, cat and chickens. I love riding my bike, being creative in the kitchen and garden, and being outdoors.
