He uri a Paraone Gloyne nō Ngāti Raukawa ki Wharepūhunga, nō Ngāti Maniapoto. E hau nei ngā rongo o Paraone hei kaitito, hei pūkōrero, hei kaihaka. Kei Te Awamutu ia e noho ana. Kua roa ia e tū ana hei kaikōkiri mō te whakarauoratanga o te reo me ngā tikanga Māori. Ko rāua ko tana wahine, ko Ngāhuia Kopa, ngā kaiako me ngā kaiārahi o te kapa haka o Mōtai Tangata Rau.
E mōhiotia nei a Paraone i tōna koi ki te tito, tae noa ki tāna whakatū i te kaupapa o Mahuru Māori, he kaupapa tērā e whakatairanga nei i te kōrerotia o te reo ki roto i ō tātou ao o ia rā, kaua ki te marama o Mahuru anake.
Nō te tau 2021 ka mutu tāna mahi mā Te Wānanga o Aotearoa,17 ngā tau i reira. Kei te kōkiri tonu ia i tētahi kōnae ipurangi i ia wiki e kīia nei ko Taringa, he mea whakahaere e Te Wānanga o Aotearoa, ā, he kaupapa reorua hei wānanga i ngā kupu, i ngā kōrero a ngā iwi me ngā tikanga.
Of Ngāti Raukawa ki Wharepūhunga and Ngāti Maniapoto descent, Paraone is a prominent composer, orator and performing artist who lives in Te Awamutu. He has been a long-standing advocate for the revitalisation of te reo Māori and tikanga Māori. Paraone and his partner Ngahuia Kopa, are the tutors and leaders of the kapa haka, Mōtai Tangata Rau. Paraone is renowned for the wittiness of his reo compositions and as the driving force behind Mahuru Māori. This pioneering kaupapa promotes speaking te reo in our daily lives, although its original focus was primarily for the month of September.
He resigned from Te Wānanga o Aotearoa in 2021 after working for the tertiary institute for 17 years. Paraone still hosts Taringa, a weekly bilingual podcast produced by Te Wānanga o Aotearoa whose hosts discuss grammar and semantics, iwi narratives and tikanga.
