Kia Ora, 

My drive, determination and positive attitude is what I pride myself on. 

My passion for journalism came from being a little bit nosy and wanting to find out the truth. NZBS has taught me how to be balanced, fair and a quick thinker. 

General news, current affairs and sport is what interests me. 

Coming from a family of four boys, sport has always played a major role in my life. It's moulded my competitive nature and the ability to thrive in high pressure situations. Sport has taught me to be a great team player. 

Before attending NZBS I worked in the United States for a two years through Camp America. This provided me valuable life experiences which I believe is an advantage heading into the media industry.  

I believe my work ethic and skill base makes me a great candidate for any organisation.
