William Fuller

William is a New Zealander through and through. He has lived in the Bay of Islands or Bay of Plenty regions his entire life, and loves exploring all this country has to offer. He earned a degree in Mathematics from Auckland University, and was a primary school teacher for 35 years (including being a principal). He has walked the North Island section of the Te Araroa trail in 2015, and is also a keen kayaker of both oceans and lakes. William’s interest in Te Reo Māori (Māori language) allows him to translate many of the place names in New Zealand, and assists greatly in identifying local birds and plants.
