Kia ora 

That means ‘hello’ in Te Reo Maori. I grew up in a small New Zealand beach town.
Most of my time there was at the skatepark, which I think was my real introduction to creativity.
Since then, I’ve worked at one of the most creatively effective agencies in the world, learned
from some of the industry's best, and picked up a couple of shiny metal things along the way.
Now I'm a Kiwi in London working with a Mexican. He's called Fabio Montero. He's great.
