Theatre Studies graduate

Director/Producer (Māori Television) Assistant Director (Shortland Street)

“At university, all I wanted to do was act. My family encouraged me to try directing, and eventually I did the directing course as part of my major in Theatre Studies at Otago University and loved it! When I left university, I got a job at Mäori Television directing, then, working as an Assistant Director on Shortland Street.

"Theatre Studies taught me a variety of skills, and not just what you learn in lectures, but a positive attitude as well- to get out there and do it!

"Now I'm moving back to Dunedin to work as the Producer for a new company, doing exactly what I want to do, where I want to do it!”
