I am a New Zealand-born Fijian/ Tongan/ Pakeha queer feminist writer, living in Aotearoa.
I blog about social justice issues, my day-to-day experiences, intersectional feminism, politics, gender, racism, culture, books, arts and activism.
I have a Phd in Sociology. My doctoral thesis was called “Queer Lives in Fiji” and was about the marginalization of sexual minorities in Fiji.
I first studied creative writing under Witi Ihimaera and Albert Wendt in 1998. My children’s novel (ages 9-12) Josefa and the Vu, was published by Huia in 2007. I have a Masters in Creative Writing from Auckland University (2016). I am currently working on a poetry collection and some essays.
I am currently studying massage therapy at Wellpark College of Natural Therapies in Grey Lynn.
