Personal statement

As a young fellow back in the 70’s and 80’s my four brothers, sister and I grew up in Cannons Creek, Porirua where we kept ourselves occupied mostly on the adjacent sport fields and from time to time attended various marae events up and down the southern western coastline of the North Island.

During those early years our preferred go to TV shows and movies back then were Logans’ Run, BattleStar Galactica, WKRP in Cincinnati, Beyond 2000, International Rugby, Bruce Lee and Star Wars; a mix of radio, sitcom, drama, sports, action films and futurist - innovation type genres that by default continues to influence my mindset to this very day.

With that being said however, and as a young graduate from a private catholic boarding school - Hato Paora College in the late 80’s, TVNZ then became my life where I flourished in the technical application of Film and Television production. This career move exacerbated my childhood interest in futuristic technologies hence, emerging tech I tend to have a huge appetite for, especially in the broadcast, digital visual space where immersive technology for me previewed a glimpse into our future some 30 years ago while at TVNZ.

That tech is now …

Kua takoto te manuka, whakamau!
Pupuritia kia taea to tātou ao Māori - reo me ōna tikanga e ora ai mo ake tonu atu.
