I seek to build capability, develop partnerships and deliver high quality recreation experiences. I have also been involved in environmental landscape architecture, development of green space frameworks, asset renewals and open space management. My roles have encompassed parks, recreational facilities, horticulture and turf management, and cemeteries; I delivered local and international webinars to support the Cemeteries and Parks industry and managed the New Zealand Cemeteries and Crematoria Collective.
In partnership with St Paul’s School, Richmond, I developed an open space plan, including play spaces that reflect the school’s beliefs, cultural values and education goals. It incorporates a vision that integrates cognitive reasoning, physical and social intelligence, and connects to bio diversity, and aligns with the school’s education framework around pedagogy.
I also successfully project managed a range of assignments such as cycleways, trails, bike track, playgrounds, multiple walking tracks and many horticultural planting plans
