Ko au te wai, Ko te wai ko au – I am the water, the water is me

This is an important whakatauki to me as a water design professional of Maori descent. It is a subtle reminder that water is a treasured taonga which we, as humans, are intrinsically linked to. If we preserve and protect our water, it in turn will look after us and the generations that follow. I have been very fortunate to be able to dedicate my career to the essence of this whakatauki.

At the start of my career I identified as a civil engineer working mainly on the design and construction of infrastructure based projects. Throughout the development of my working life I have increasingly gravitated towards stormwater management, discovering a passion and ability for water sensitive design in particular. As a stormwater practitioner, I am proud to have been able to play a part in designing solutions to protect and restore the quality of our waterways and the environment.

From a personal perspective I see an opportunity in my professional stormwater management role to better apply matauranga Maori to preserve resources, their mauri and their mana.

Ko wai au? Ko wai au – Who am I? I am water
