Hello.

 

I'm a freelance journalist living in Nelson, New Zealand. 

My columns and stories have appeared in/on the New Zealand Herald, The Magazine, Metro, The Wireless, Sunday, the Listener, the Dominion Post, The Press, the Sunday Star-Times, Sky Sport Magazine, Radio New Zealand National, and the Sydney Morning Herald

I post some of them here

I write a regular column for The Nelson Mail.

I'm on TwitterLinkedIn, and Instagram, natch. 

Here are a few tearsheets of stories I especially enjoyed writing, and my latest project with photographer Alden Williams investigating some of the region's most charmingly decrepit old houses.

I have a story in forthcoming book Tell You What: Great New Zealand Non-Fiction 2015. You should probably buy copies for several dozen of your closest friends and family. 

Here are some photos I've taken, including reporting from Antarctica, the Vancouver Winter Olympics, Uluru, and Asia.

I run Featured, a collection of great New Zealand non-fiction. Send me your favourite stories!

I'm writing a book on the history of the Nelson Tasman Hospice. Give these good people some money.

I took part in a five-part series of interviews with young(ish) feature writers for The Pantograph Punch - check them all out.

I spent six months investigating media representations of Antarctica and presented the results at Antarctica New Zealand's annual conference. Let me know if you'd like to hear more about that research.

I'm a devout Mustachian.

I like running, tramping, and biking.

I've developed a troubling dependence on white noise to help me focus on writing. This is my go-to, and I'm also partial to a bit of rolling thunder.

I'd love to hear from you.
