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, Heritage New Zealand magazine, and the Sydney Morning Herald.
I also work at Page & Blackmore, the nation's best bookstore (official), and at Red Gallery/Cafe, which has Nelson's best scones and best hot chocolate (unofficial yet widely accepted). They are happy places.
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 us 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, and really liked what my colleagues had to say about the craft, the despair, and the moments of sublime - 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 like running, tramping, yoga, biking, poetry, and am a devout Mustachian.
I'd love to hear from you.
