I live in the Eastern Bay of Plenty where I’ve been working with various iwi and hapū, the wider community as well as agencies and governmental departments for more than five years. My specific interests are in people’s relationships with the natural environment and the cross-cultural care for natural resources. I apply a lot of my research and project management skills to the kaupapa of the collaborative governance group that oversees the well-being of Ohiwa Harbour.
Originally from Germany I have been living in Aotaeroa New Zealand for more than ten years.
