Puketāpapa /Mt Roskill is the community that gave me my start in life and now I want to give back. I’ve lived here for 30 years, am a former Roskill grammar student with a Master of Architecture degree, and now practice as an architectural designer.

I want to use these skills to ensure that development in our community is led by quality design. Our community is growing and whether it is housing, parks or transport infrastructure, our community deserves quality and deserves to have a say.

I believe in engaging the community from the start, which I have done recently by collecting people’s ideas to develop a community vision for revitalising the Roskill Shops.

A keen volunteer locally, I enjoy helping the Roskill Chinese Group, Friends of Wairaki Stream, and the Roskill Bike Kitchen.

Please vote for me and the whole Roskill Community Voice team for Puketāpapa Local Board.
