KAIWHAKAHAERE PĀPĀHO: MEDIA & MARKETING MANAGER

Ngāti Maniapoto/ Te Atiawa

Kia mau tonu ki tēnā; kia mau ki te kawau mārō. Whanake ake! Whanake ake!

Stick to that, the straight-flying cormorant!

 

I was born and raised in the humble town of Kihikihi, gateway to the mighty King Country, then moved to Otautahi to study.  In October 2011 I left  Otautahi for my OE in the UK... 10 years later I am still here.

 

I have been so grateful to be part of the Ngāti Rānana whānau since 2016.  I am excited to be in the role of Kaiwhakahaere Pāpāho - Media and Marketing Manager for 2021. I have worked in television in Aotearoa hosting its longest running kids TV show "What Now" and now I work in TV Production here in Rānana. 

 

2020 has shown us the true power, media and the internet has to connect people; and I hope going forward I can help connect our whānau back home with all the exciting mahi and experiences we hope to have here in the northern hemisphere.
