I spend the majority of my time working as a business broker with Divest Business Sales. I am also an enrolled Barrister and Solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand (without a current practising certificate) and worked in general legal practice for three years before moving into brokerage.
I have been an elected member of the Waitematā Local Board of Auckland Council since 2013. My roles on the Local Board include Deputy Chair of the Finance Committee; Deputy Chair of the Hearings Committee; Lead of the Parks and Open Spaces Portfolio; and, Co-holder of the Heritage, Urban Design and Planning Portfolio. I am certified as a Resource Management Act commissioner.
In the 2011 General Election, I stood as the Green Party candidate in Northcote. I am no longer a member of the Green Party or any other political party.
I hold a Master of Laws degree (LL.M) with First Class Honours from the University of Auckland where I was awarded the 2010 Fowlds Memorial Prize for Most Distinguished Masters Student in Law.
In 2014, I taught at the University of Auckland as a Professional Teaching Fellow at the Department of Planning, National Institute for Creative Arts and Industry (NICAI), and from 2011-2013 as a tutor in Jurisprudence at the Faculty of Law in the general streams as well as the Māori and Pasifika programes. I was a Research Fellow at the New Zealand Centre for Environmental Law from 2009 to 2011 working closely with Professor Klaus Bosselmann who was also my Masters thesis supervisor.
