Brought up on his marae Tauranganui in Port Waikato, Tainui with his grand parents, Aaron truly grasped the country lifestyle and embellished his cultural upbringing. With 10 siblings to nag at, Aaron learned respect and kotahitanga (together as one) from a very young age. Moving to the city at the age of 16 was a big step for Aaron and recalls “finding it considerably difficult to adapt to the fast paced lifestyle of a towney”.

His whanau ties include Tainui and Ngati Porou, East Coast. The majority of his family are spread out across New Zealand which gives him the opportunity to travel and experience life in other necks of the woods.

Mr Kirk loves the outdoors and is considered snap-happy when confronted with a beautiful landscape. Don’t be surprised if you see him in your town taking pictures. With a bachelor in communication studies, diploma in digital media and certificate in radio under his belt, Aaron hopes to secure a “dream job” in an industry he has grown to be passionate about.
