What do you do at TIA?  
I am Strategy and Policy Manager at TIA. I really enjoy contributing to TIA’s work to cut a strong future for the tourism industry. Highlights for me include the progressive updating of the Tourism 2025 framework and the Tourism Sustainability Commitment which is going from strength to strength as the need for tourism to be operating sustainably gets ever-stronger.      

What's your career background? 
Much of my career has been in the government policy space, with a long spell on tourism policy. Putting this experience to good use from an industry perspective is another part of my role that I certainly enjoy.   

What do you do for fun?  
Wining and dining, a good competitive hand of cards or backgammon, and getting out on the south coast for a good long wheel in the wild Wellington wind.
