I joined the team at Hollister-Jones Lellman as a Crown Prosecutor in 2016. I have since appeared in District Courts, High Courts and Youth Courts throughout the North Island on a range of criminal law matters representing the Crown and various Government agencies.
A Tauranga local, I completed my law degree with first class honours through Waikato University in 2013. While there, I achieved top of class three times and received the 2013 Waikato District Law Society Gold Award for top honours graduate. I was admitted as a solicitor of the High Court of New Zealand in 2014.
Following completion of my degree, I was employed by Waikato University undertaking legal research specializing in human rights. This included involvement in the organisation of the New Zealand symposium on the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. My interest in human rights is also reflected in my first published book, "A critique of intersectionality within international human rights law" (2016) Lambert Academic Publishing. Relocating to Wellington in 2015 I completed a year of a judicial clerkship with the New Zealand Ministry of Justice, specialist jurisdiction, Employment Court, before transferring to Auckland to work for a national law firm in the Crown Specialist team undertaking litigation work.
In my free time I enjoy boxing and exploring the great outdoors.
