Born in Christchurch, I have spent the majority of my childhood and youth life around New Brighton, where I naturally got involved with church through Youth Alive Trust. The leaders I had in programmes like Surge, were incredible role models to me and because of their impartation on my life, I have since become passionate about serving youth myself.
I have been on a journey of understanding the greater role I have as a Christian creative in this city and how we can use creativity to build the Church. The creativity I see within the youth and creative ministries I am a part of both humbles and inspires me and I'm grateful to be able to impart my knowledge in our community and edify younger people around me.
I desire for everything I do, whether it be leading youth, or creativity, to be centred around God. He is and will always be my greatest inspiration.
