Writing is not just what I do for a living - it’s my passion

I’m a freelance writer, based in Hamilton, New Zealand.

Always on the lookout for challenging and satisfying writing work, I’ll write articles, blogs, website content, marketing copy, press releases, newsletters, obituaries - anything my clients need to communicate in words.

My favourite subjects include health, social issues, travel and music. However, I enjoy writing about any subject because I love to research new things, meet new people and hear their stories. 

I enjoyed a 15-year career as a freelance journalist before switching to a general writing career in 2016. My journalism career allowed me to practice the art, ethical code and legal aspects of journalism, which I still use in my capacity as a writer-for-hire.

Although I’m a New Zealander, I started my career with an internship at a small newspaper in California in 2001 - a short stopover during years of travelling at crawling-pace through North America, Europe and Australasia.

Throughout the years I’ve had hundreds of articles published in a broad range of New Zealand, Australian and international magazines and newspapers, in print and online. I’m a regular columnist with Vegetarian Living New Zealand, where I write a column called Vegetarian Families.                                                                               

Please make yourself at home and enjoy browsing through some samples of my published work.  If you need something written, I’ll be happy to hear from you.
