I grew up on a cluster of islands at the bottom of the earth, looking up in awe at the rest of the world like a precarious young sibling wanting to join in. Auckland, my home, has birdsong and wild black beaches and a youthful, yearning sort of personality. It would cocoon me in its idyll, and I would paint and write as a child, feet/mind dangling at the very edge of the Tasman Sea. My studies were at the University of Auckland, where I graduated with a double major in English and Film. I’m longing to eventually return to education, in storytelling or in business.
I’m currently nomadic, travelling with my camera and as much openness as I can consistently muster. Recently I have set foot in Cambodia, China, Malaysia, Bali, California, Oregon, Washington and Mexico.
These are the photographs I capture of people living their lives and places being places. These are the thoughts I have on our world at large and our microscopic, mundane day-to-days. On our need to adventure and our more vulnerable desires to stay. On our human condition and on realness.
I love connecting with people, and the best way to connect would be through Instagram. I look forward to meeting you!
