Sam is passionate about tackling New Zealand’s big challenges. There is more data available now than ever before, and using this to make the right decisions is critical for the long-term success of New Zealand.
There are always challenges to solve, and these challenges can be transformed into opportunities if the right decisions are made. Sam’s work includes a wide range of data-led analysis to assist clients around New Zealand in making these decisions, often using Statistics New Zealand’s Integrated Data Infrastructure.
Sam’s work spans all three of BERL’s kete, working to improve wellbeing in Aotearoa through economic development, relieving community challenges and working with the Māori economy.
When Sam isn’t crunching the numbers, he enjoys board games, football and exploring New Zealand.
