writing

Over the past years, I've been blessed with the opportunity to work on projects where I can blend my skills in creative writing and research.

Working with the Auckland-based TikiLounge Productions, I sourced and advised on the cultural folk stories for the Legendary Polynesia animated web series under TV NZ and NZ On Air.

Being a Christian, Samoan-Filipino, and out member of the LGBTQIA+ community is something I've started talking about more in the last few years as the importance of visible representation has become so apparent. If sharing my account helps even one person, it will have been worth it.

During my postgraduate studies with the Auckland University of Technology (AUT), I was invited to share the grief and lessons learned for those who would follow us, through AUT's student blog. Thank you for hosting me, AUT!

As student lead of Communication Design for the story world of Beambox Interactive Playground, I supported a collaborative project between Auckland University of Technology (AUT), Auckland University, and Digital Art Live | Auckland Live. This project introduced the electromagnetic spectrum to primary aged children as part of the United Nation's 2015 celebration of the International Year of Light and Light-Based Technologies.
