Kia ora!

I whānau mai au i te taha o te awa o Waikato.
I raro i te maru a ngā maunga o Maungatautari.
He uri ahau nō Ingarani, nō Kotirana.
Kei te noho au kei Tāmaki makaurau.
I whānau mai au i konei nā te Tiriti i tuku ōku tūpuna kia haere mai ki Aotearoa.
Ko Duncan Matthews tōku ingoa

This video is a short introduction to me, my mahi and my kaupapa, made by the University of Auckland as part of my Masters of Social and Community Leadership jouney.

Mahi can't really begin until we get to know each other, kanohi ki te kanohi. Feel free to contact me anytime for a kōrero; the mahi will come if it is meant to!

Problem solving, learning and mentoring others drives me
