Producer

When Nix Jaques began her screen career in 2004 as a production coordinator, she knew straight away she wanted to be a producer — "I loved the aspect of bringing all the parts together." Waikato-raised Jaques achieved her goal, by producing long-running renovation series Marae DIY for more than a decadeShe has also produced cooking show Testing the Menu (2013), six-part documentary series Inconceivable (2016) which follows couples trying to get pregnant  and Loading Docs short Wahine Warrior (2020). In 2018 Jaques moved to Vanuatu for three years, after her partner landed a secondment with the Defence Force.

Through the kaupapa of Marae DIY, I have had the amazing experience of seeing Aotearoa through a different lens. The kaupapa has given me a whole new way of thinking and gifted a knowledge of te ao Māori that has shaped my world view. Nix Jaques
