About Me:

I gained my Master of Museum and Heritage Studies from Victoria University of Wellington in 2008, joining PHANZA that same year.

I then primarily worked as a contract historian for Heritage New Zealand, and in 2010 I started part-time work as the IPENZ Heritage Advisor. Other projects I have been involved with include developing some of the stories for the Ministry of Culture and Heritage's Roadside Stories (www.mch.govt.nz/roadside/). In mid-2016 I started full-time work as a Heritage Advisor for Heritage New Zealand.

I joined the PHANZA Committee in 2011 and am continuing on the Committee for 2016-17 in the Secretary role.

Specialities:
Late 19th New Zealand museum collections, built heritage, engineering heritage
