Of New Zealand Maori descent (Ngati Hauiti, Te Arawa) he spent time when young learning the traditional Maori fighting styles of mau rakau. He enrolled at the New Zealand Drama School, and then the Teatro Dmitri Scoula in Switzerland.
After returning to Aotearoa New Zealand from Europe, he was cast in The Piano. Subsequent roles in New Zealand include the camp melodrama Desperate Remedies, the gruelling urban drama Once Were Warriors, in which he plays a child rapist, and the lighthearted comedy Jubilee.
