SECRET OPTICS BIO

I began working in optics by chance, in London, in my 20's. 

While there I was given a glimpse through the keyhole of the global optical industry. Having soaked up all that I could I then came home, schooled up, & qualified as a Dispensing Optician.

I opened my first practice in Tauranga 15 years ago.

This year, 2020, it was time for a new thing.

All that I have learned, distilled down in to a curated little den of an Optician's nook.

 In the Republic of 9th Avenue, friends have helped me repurpose an original stucco cottage. Stripping away the decades, we have tried to reveal the beauty of the humble original materials. 

Adding things found, stored & reworked, what remains is a cozy space from which I can help you express yourself through your eyewear.

WHY WE'RE SPECIAL

Eyewear has the ability to transform the wearer. Matching frames to faces is the remit of every Optician, but there are not many have the artful instinct for the task that I do.
It requires the ability to understand the person, educate, dream a little, & conjure the outcome.
This is done through listening, imagining & empowering you to make confident decisions in order to achieve amazing eyewear outcomes.
