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

I write weekly feature stories, entertainment stories, a column, and a spot of news, which appear in The Nelson Mail, other Fairfax New Zealand titles, and occasionally elsewhere.

I post some of them here

I'm on TwitterLinkedIn, and Instagram, natch. 

Here are a few tearsheets of stories I especially enjoyed writing.

And 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, which I really enjoyed reading - check them all out.

I travelled to the United States to investigate digital longform. The original report is archived here, and I'm launching a live version soon.

I spent six months researching 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.

I'm a 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.
