About Itu

I was born and raised in Rotuma, a Polynesian island and a dependency of Fiji. I emigrated to Aotearoa New Zealand over fifteen years ago and live in Meadowbank with my partner.

I hold two business qualifications from the University of Auckland (MBA, PgDipBus), and run my own media production consultancy business. My professional background is in media (television and radio) with over 20 years of experience, focussing on business strategy, engagement, and production.

In addition, I am a Rotuman language educator and translator and will soon publish Aotearoa’s first bilingual poetry collection in Rotuman and English.

The values that guide me through life are Family, Faith, Community, Respect, Love, and Relationship.
