Woman-drawing-chalk

I’m a writer and artist based in Tauranga, New Zealand.

I love stumbling into stories—and I’m passionate about creatively expressing them.

Born and raised in Hawaii, I moved to my parents’ homeland of New Zealand in 2012. After completing my Bachelor of Education (Primary), I served with a nonprofit missionary movement, Youth With A Mission (YWAM), for five years.

Day to day I’m a preschool teacher, where I stumble into the best—and most hilarious—stories of all.
