Kia ora! I’m Phill, a Youth Navigator in the Youth Employment team and I enjoy making a positive impact on the lives of our rangatahi.

I was raised in Auckland and also spent time living in Budapest, Hungary. Now living in Rotorua with my wife Viki, and daughter Rusty (feline).

I have a range of experience working with youth in tertiary education and also as a volunteer mentor with the Graeme Dingle Foundation. I am currently finishing a Diploma in Positive Psychology & well-being and have trained as a Mindfulness educator.

In my spare time I like to go hiking, watch cricket & rugby or I’ll be teaching/performing improv comedy.
