This is my personal website on which I share my thoughts on things legal, political and social.
I am a barrister in Auckland, New Zealand, practising exclusively as a criminal defence lawyer.
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.
From 2016-2019 I worked as a business broker with Divest Business Sales.
From 2011 to 2019 I regularly appeared as a commentator on politics and current affairs on Radio Live/Magic Talk, The AM Show on Newshub and Newstalk ZB.
I was an elected member of the Waitematā Local Board of Auckland Council between 2013 and 2019. I am certified as a Resource Management Act Independent Commissioner.
I was a Research Fellow at the New Zealand Centre for Environmental Law from 2009 to 2011 working closely with Professor Klaus Bosselmann, including co-editing ‘Water Rights and Sustainability’, volume 3 of the NZCEL monograph series.
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.
