Paloma Schneideman is a 20-something creative based in Tāmaki Makaurau, New Zealand. 

Her interests have always gravitated towards the female experience, particularly the queer and diasporic experience, as those are the communities she  most identifies with. She is particularly interested in representation and diversifying the types stories we tell in Aotearoa. 

As a musician, she goes under the alias PollyHill. When co-creating with HalfQueen, they're known as Connie Ca$h.
