I am an artist/writer living in Tāmaki Makaurau. In my multi-faceted practice I make texts, objects, printed images, publications, and films; sometimes alone and sometimes with others. These nebulous materialisations are driven by an autoethnographic impulse, and supported by studies in Fine Arts, Sociology, Creative Writing and Graphic Design. Currently, I am the Artist in Residence the Te Tuhi Parnell Station Studios, so my studio time is punctuated by coming and going trains.

In 2019 I collaboratively set up Pipi Press, an initiative to publish critical, hopeful content which encompasses the poetic and political. It re-imagines the material and social processes involved in publishing, by exploring form, production and distribution.

I divide my time between these practices and freelance Graphic Design work predominately in the Arts and Publishing sectors.
