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 my latest digital storytelling project investigating some of the region's most charmingly decrepit old houses. 

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

I travelled to the United States to investigate digital longform, and the report is archived here.

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.
