Few things in life are as precious as the recollections and stories of whānau and friends. It was with this in mind that we gave our dad an oral history to celebrate his 90th birthday. We were lucky enough to find Emily and Origin Stories to interview and record Alan’s life. Emily was wonderfully approachable, empathetic, and asked just the right questions to bring Alan’s memories alive. Emily helped us create something quite remarkable for us and our generations to come.
