I am an independent contractor undertaking a broad range of heritage management work. In New Zealand this includes heritage management advice, strategic planning, conservation planning, statements of significance, heritage assessments, historical research and writing, visitor interpretation, museum display content development, training, and project management. I work occasionally for ICCROM as a lecturer, assisting with training in international and Asia-Pacific region training programmes. In my free time I am involved in voluntary heritage activities in my local community and am chair of a group which organises an annual regional heritage month. I am passionate about engaging people with heritage.
