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

I post some on my Facebook page, and a few others appear up there under Stories.

I write a column for The Nelson Mail, and am a guest on Fresh FM's breakfast show every second Thursday, discussing Things I've Been Writing About Lately.

I also match readers with books at Page & Blackmore, the nation's best bookstore (official), and eaters with scones at Red Gallery/Cafe, which has Nelson's best hot chocolate (also official). 

I'm on TwitterLinkedIn, and Instagram, natch. 

Here are some photos I've taken, including reporting from Antarctica, the US, 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'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.
