David is a born and bred, contemporary, indige-urban Māori, Samoan, NZ European. David is presently completing his Bachelors of Health Sciences at Massey University after achieving health related tohu from Auckland University of Technology and The University of Auckland. His faith, love for community empowerment and development, health system restructuring and involvement in a generational lift and shift of the current ideas of Māori and Pacific
Island peoples in Aotearoa has driven the move to Hāpai Te Hauora.

With a passion for progression and advancement of Māori and Pacific Island populations, David hopes to make a positive change to the present detrimental outcomes these groups encounter. In turn this drives his desire to provide a steady platform for his 2 children to build upon. His goal is to utilise innovative approaches, technologies and determined work ethic to deliver outcomes that have a meaningful and measureable impact for whānau, hapū and iwi collectives.
