Kia orana. Talofa lava. Welcome from Junior. A New Zealand-born Polynesian (Rarotongan, Samoan) living in Onehunga, Junior has studied Performing Arts so where he is today goes back to 2005 when he was under the guidance of Letti Chadwick and Sean Coyle. They saw something in him which he canít explain, and encouraged him to further his studies as an actor Ė much love to those two amazing people.

At the age of 34 he got into performing arts in 2005. That year he studied at BEST Pacific Institute (now called P.I.P.A). He also attended Toi Whakaari (2006-2008) and in 2010 he studied at South Seas Film and Television.

This is his third involvement with Ellerslie Theatrical Society during the last four years, previous performances including The End of The Golden Weather in 2016. He enjoys beer from the fridge, food in his belly, and it amuses him to watch kids being growled at by their parents in supermarkets.
