Who Are We?

Meeting Your Needs

Pita Pirihi Westhaven 4 12.6.19.jpg

Tēnā koutou katoa, Kō Pita Pirihi tōku ingoa and I'm the Director & Founder of PATU MEDIA. 

With my extensive experience starting out within the Film, Television and Radio game spanning 20+ years in multiple roles, acquiring a new skill set via the Digital and Social media space over the last 2.5 years at Māori Television, I am now able to implement what I've learned in the Advertising, Marketing and Sales Industries to assist you in meeting your needs and wants by taking your brand to the next level.


As well, this is my story behind my brand PATU MEDIA and how I intend on implementing what I've learned in my career. 


The word PATU represents two meanings from within Te Ao Māori for me.

One is of my Hapū (sub-tribe) 'Patuharakeke' or PATU for short which I represent with the utmost 'Te Whakaute' (Respect) and 'Whakahi' (Pride).

And secondly, the close combat weapon we as Māori refer to as a PATU, a weapon used by Māori to engage in hand to hand combat which resembles a short, sharp - smooth type club used for ‘Striking’ within close quarters.

The English translation of PATU is to ‘Strike with force and strategic precision’ and it is this 'Ara' (Path) that we here at PATU MEDIA intend on forging ahead within the media industry by being precise and calculated in our approach of your vision with our creation.

PATU MEDIA was only ever a dream never a goal for me, yet having gained invaluable knowledge over the years within the media industry from business mentors from within the industry learning how to implement a brand strategy from scratch, then create an advertising campaign using various platforms, developing client relationships and new business acquisition from a variety of industries, I decided to forge my own a 'Ara' (Path) so to speak in what I've learned over the years and to just ..... Go for it and give it a jam!

And here we are today .....
