Born, and raised in New Zealand of Pacific Island heritage. Self taught in the art of photography and film. Nomadic wanderer of the world since my early 20’s in search of adventure, fame, fortune, love and ultimately the discovery of self. New York, Paris, London. Samoa and most recently Sydney Australia. Works collected in various museums around the world such as France, Australia, New Zealand, Germany and Taiwan.

The theme that runs strongly through my work is cultural displacement, colonial impact on indigenous cultures particularly Pacific Islands and Religious Christian iconography’s mutation of tribal and so called primitive icons. Mostly classified as a ‘art’ photographer, am comfortable with the commercial world. Photography is a visual language often used to manipulate certain masses of people‚Äôs, cultures & identities.
